This is a Center for Leadership & Ethics forum co-sponsored by the School of Bible & World Christianity
To join our Church Relations email list and be notified about upcoming events contact Lars Coburn, the Director of University Relations.
Bushnell Church Relations seeks to serve the Church by resourcing, particularly those in the Pacific Northwest with two signature events each year. One in the Spring and one in the Fall, with other contributions and partnerships throughout the year.
Each Spring we offer an undergraduate course in preaching, and so the Spring signature event for 2023 the event was called Faith in a Polarized World with guest Dr. Richard Beck.
Spring of 2022 was called Speak: Preaching and Communication for the Church.
You can find all the recordings of the afternoon sessions on our Bushnell Church Relations YouTube channel and you can watch our Chapel services each week as well as past recordings on the main Bushnell University YouTube channel here.

Past ministries who have participated include:
Berean Baptist Church, Campus Crusade for Christ, City Church, City Salt Church, Collegiate Christian Fellowship of First Baptist Eugene, Ekklesia, Emmaus Life, First Christian Church Eugene, Gospel Community Church, Grace Community Fellowship, Harrisburg Christian Church, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Life Bible Church, New Hope Eugene, Newman Center, North Park Community Church, Northwood Christian Church, Onyx House, Resonate, Santa Clara Church, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, St. John the Wonderworker Orthodox Church, Summit Creek Church, The Rising, University Fellowship, Westside Christian Church, Westside Faith Center, and Willamette Christian Center.
