Toward a Free and Virtuous Society conferences are intensive seminars for future religious leaders. These conferences offer an introduction to the moral foundations of personal and economic liberty by combining an in-depth treatment of economic principles with principles of social justice and anthropology. They explore the nature of the human person and the created order from the perspectives of Scripture and natural law, examining concepts such as justice, equality, stewardship, and virtue. In addition, these seminars focus on applying the principles of economic liberty to complex issues such as poverty, welfare reform, and globalization.
This is the only seminar for future religious leaders that combines and in-depth treatment of economic concepts with concerns about social justice. The program is intellectually demanding; participants are required to do advanced reading and must be prepared to offer comments and defend their views during the question and answer sessions.
