The Campolo Fellows Lecture Series was launched to introduce Campolo Scholars to Christianity’s leading faith-and-thought-leaders. Each semester, these communicators and practitioners of the faith join Scholars on campus to address specific topics within their field of specialty. Through public forums, workshops, and conversations over a shared meal, these Fellows play a vital role in preparing scholars for their vocations and we are thankful for both their ministries and participation.

We are most grateful for the generous grants provided by the Eula Mae and John Baugh Family Foundation for underwriting the Campolo Fellows program.
