The Changing Faces Series

The Changing Faces series is the title for an annual multicultural conference, sponsored by Saint John’s University, Saint John's School of Theology•Seminary, and CSB’s Companions on a Journey, to provide an opportunity to connect with and serve within the broader community and reach more people interested in intercultural hospitality and ministry.
