WFPS LogoThe Western Fellowship of Professors and Scholars (WFPS) is a conference promoting research, discussion, and academic fellowship on issues relating to the Christian faith.

Each fall professors and scholars gather on the campus of Manhattan Christian College to share papers and presentations on a wide range of topics that have a bearing on the practice and understanding of the Christian faith, whether they are closely related to the conference theme or not. Works-in-progress and interdisciplinary projects are welcome. Papers dealing with technical matters should be presented in a way that is accessible to an educated and interested audience who may not have specialized training in technical fields.

We are living in one of the most troubled times in history. It is at times like that we need to pray for a revival and when the revival takes places it will be through the power of the Holy Spirit. Thus our theme for the 2015 conference focuses on the Holy Spirit. We would like to see papers relating to the following ideas:

  • An exegetical study of the Holy Spirit as discussed in the Gospel of John
  • An exegetical study of Paul’s discussion in 1 Corinthians about the gifts of the Holy Spirit
  • A study of the Holy Spirit as seen by the Church Fathers
  • A study of “outbursts” of the Holy Spirit throughout history such as the Moravians
  • A study of the Azuza Street phenomena
  • A study of what Pentecostals are doing on a world wide basis today.

We would not have a problem if some would prefer to bring a study on a different subject.
