    In light of the inescapable struggles of digital connection, how can we engage with building community in online spaces? How can we avoid being performative and encourage authenticity in virtual communication? Is your online presence truly who you are, or just a highlight reel? 

    Join Professor Jeremy Pettitt and Creative Agency Director Katt for a conversation about community in online spaces, engaging emerging adults, and ditching our idealized self in favor of truer connection.

    Dreams of Living Life

    Dreams of Living Life

    How do we maintain faithfulness to Christian faith as a set of beliefs, practices, and ways of engaging with Jesus in this moment without completely disengaging from the cultural context of this moment? How can we use art to practice placemaking in our contexts? What is the value in slowing down and experiencing the journey if the end destination is the same? 

    Join Professor Jeremy Pettitt and graphic designer Savannah for a conversation about building a brand and a visual identity, wrestling with the lensions between culture and Christ, and living in the now.

    Have you ever asked yourself why you’re using that app you just opened? Or found yourself scrolling through an app that you don’t even remember opening?

    Join Professor Jeremy Pettitt and Communications professor Raychel “Prof Mack” McKelvey for a conversation about coming of age in a digital era, slowing down our scroll, and practices for managing our social media consumption.
