about the speaker

The Church & Culture Conference is led by Dr. James Emery White - a speaker who is able to combine the intellectual and the practical like few can. With a Ph.D. and additional studies at such schools as Vanderbilt and Oxford, Dr. White serves as the ranked adjunct professor of theology and culture at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, where he also led as their fourth president.

He also planted Mecklenburg Community Church (Meck) in Charlotte, North Carolina, home to more than 10,000 active attenders. The melding of Dr. White’s research and the living laboratory that is Meck, is unique in the church world. Largely, because the ideas and methods have been held accountable. To date, more than 70% of Meck’s growth has come from the previously unchurched.

Dr. White is the president of Serious Times, a ministry that explores the intersection of faith and culture and hosts ChurchAndCulture.org featuring his messages and blogs. And finally, his books have framed some of the most important conversations for ministry today - from Rethinking the Church to Serious Times, from The Rise of the Nones to Meet Generation Z. His forthcoming book, Christianity for People Who Aren’t Christians is already sparking so much interest from pastors.
