Dr. Edgar Lectures at Trinity Forum Academy
January 05, 2009
It is a nine-month residential graduate program designed to help young leaders serve in a way that genuinely reflects their commitment to Christ, and so make a remarkable and lasting impact in our society.
The Trinity Forum Academy was founded in 2001 with the vision to transform and renew culture through the transformation and renewal of our future leaders. This mission grew from the vision of The Trinity Forum, an organization dedicated to reaching out to current leaders in all sectors of society to consider and act on the most important ideas and issues in our culture today. Since its inception, the Academy has graduated 76 alumni who are now serving as committed leaders throughout the country.
The founding Chairman, Robert G. Kramer (a trustee of The Trinity Forum, Annapolis business owner, former Maryland state legislator, and former minister) together with Trinity Forum trustee Ann Holladay and Trinity Forum Senior Fellow, Dr. Os Guinness shared a number of values that inspired them to form the Academy. These values included living a life wholly committed to Christ, investing in young leaders through education, building close relationships with like minded friends and colleagues and the importance of seriously considering and reflecting on the most important ideas of our time. The notion of a Christian community pursuing a deep understanding of faith and culture was particularly inspired by time spent by the founders at Francis Schaeffer's L'Abri community in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
