COBA hosts Christian Business Faculty Association Conference



Dr. Monty Lynn

For Immediate Release
October 4, 2004

The Christian Business Faculty Association will be holding their 20th annual conference in San Antonio Oct. 28-30, and Abilene Christian University is hosting this year's conference under the direction of Dr. Monty Lynn, acting dean of the College of Business Administration.

The 2004 CBFA conference, which is called "Just Business: Christian Perspectives on Marketplace Justice," has had the largest response in CBFA history. More than 100 colleges and universities will be represented at the conference.

Roughly 180 business professors or teachers from Christian colleges and universities usually attend CBFA's annual conference, but a record number of more than 275 plan to attend this year. Lynn attributes the increase in this year's attendance to the exciting location and COBA's effective marketing.

ACU has attended the CBFA conference for the past 5 years but this is its first year to host the event. About 15 ACU faculty members will be attending the conference.

“We are excited to host this national Christian business academic organization and let colleagues at other colleges and universities learn more about ACU. We couldn't have pulled it off without our wonderful staff who have devoted many hours to the conference," Lynn said.

This year's conference includes a list of distinguished speakers, corporate tours, group interest meetings, worship time and fellowship. The goals of the conference are to share new and innovative ways of teaching, to further stimulate the integration of Christianity and business in education, and to facilitate networking between Christian business faculty members.

“This is the one time each year when we get a chance to get together with academic colleagues in church-related institutions and share ideas in faith-integration, teaching, and business," Lynn said.

The CBFA began in 1980 as a meeting of 12-15 business professors from Christian colleges who wanted to discuss the integration of business and Christianity. Membership of the CBFA has now reached to more than 400 business professors and teachers who teach at the university level across the U.S. and in Canada.
