What Is Q?

Q equips Christians on how to thoughtfully engage our cultural moment. Through immersive learning experiences where no topic is off limits, leaders are encouraged to think, process and consider their approach on the most difficult cultural conversations they will face. Our method of learning is simple: exposure, conversation, and collaboration. We didn't want to create just another conference, but instead, make an intentional effort to platform the best and brightest ideas that are shaping our world and interact with them. Q is not for passive listeners, but for active leaders hungry to shape the future of culture.

What Should I Expect at Q Union?

Q Union will take place on your campus Dec. 4th, 6th, and 8th in chapel. You will hear from national speakers David Brooks, Kara Powell, and Propaganda via broadcast along with three live local presentations from fellow students all designed to educate and equip you to engage our cultural moment well. You will be participating in this event connected together with thousands of students across the nation.
