Ruth Institute Offers Marriage Conference for Students

University students, interns, seminarians, and young adults interested in learning more about the case for marriage between one man and one woman may be interested in applying for the Ruth Institute’s fifth annual three day pro-marriage conference, “It Takes a Family to Raise a Village.”

The free conference is being held May 30 – June 2 in San Diego. The seminar-style conference brings together 18-30-year-olds for an inter-disciplinary, inter-faith program to help them make an informed and compassionate case for natural marriage. Held at the Town and Country Resort, the conference is open to 35 participants. All of the lectures, food, transportation in San Diego, lodging, and a travel stipend are provided.

Participants from the 2011 "It Takes a Family" conference.

Among the invited and confirmed speakers are: Bill Duncan, director of the Marriage Law Foundation; Robert Gagnon, associate professor of New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary; Mark Regnerus, associate professor of sociology at the University of Texas at Austin; Dr. Freda McKissic Bush, a partner with East Lakeland OB-GYN, and others.

“We are looking for young adults who are passionate about the social issues, and who have leadership potential in their chosen vocation,” said Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of the Ruth Institute. “We want to equip them to understand marriage, why it’s important, and why it should remain between one man and one woman.”

Previous graduates of the program have gone on to form clubs, start blogs, speak on radio programs, and write nationally. The opportunity is likely to inspire future graduates to do likewise.
