“Living and Working in the 21st Century: Challenges and Opportunities,” is the theme of the Eighth Annual Student Research Conference at Nyack College on Tuesday, April 9 from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM in Bowman Gym, 1 South Boulevard on the Rockland County campus. The event is co-sponsored by Nyack’s Center for Scholarship and Global Engagement (CSGE), the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Nursing.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Udo W. Middelmann, president of the Francis A. Schaeffer Foundation. Francis Schaeffer advocated for “the Christian worldview as the only way to understand our existence in the world around us, with nobility for all human beings, with real answers to the tough questions of life and death and with a coherent singular purpose to fulfil the mandates of God, who has made us in his image.”
Udo Middelmann earned law degrees from Freiburg University, Germany and in theology from Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, MO. He worked with Dr. Schaeffer as associate pastor as well as a long-time trustee, member and lecturer at the Swiss L’Abri. Udo has lectured widely on ethics and society in many countries on all continents and regularly publishes “Footnotes.” He is the author of “Pro-Existence,” “The Market-Driven Church” and “The Innocence of God.”
