Both presentations are free and open to the public.

Mark McMinn has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Vanderbilt University and taught at George Fox until 1993, when he left to help establish the Psy.D. program at Wheaton College. He has been a licensed psychologist since 1985, and is the author of professional books and journal articles, as well as the award winning book, “Why Sin Matters: The surprising relationship between our sin and God’s grace.” Primary areas of interest to McMinn include clergy-psychology collaboration, clergy health, and the integration of psychology and Christianity.
