Robert A. SiricoLutheran World Relief president and chief executive officer Rev. John Nunes, Dr. Jason Casellas of the University of Texas, and theology professor Anthony Bradley of the Covenant Theological Seminary.

It will include sessions on "Christian Anthropology:  Freedom and Virtue," "Virtue and Economic Thinking," "The Economic Challenges of Urban Ministry," "Subsidiarity," "Private Charity," "Civil Society and the Welfare State," and "The Entrepreneurial Vocation."
