AI and the Church Seminar


Registration Link for the event


Dr. Braden Molhoek and Dr. Ted Peters will equip pastors and lay leaders with an overview of ethical questions being raised by rapidly emerging AI technologies in all aspects of society.


The buzz about AI has been dizzying, hasn’t it? This seminar will help provide handles, particularly for pastors, campus ministers and lay leaders, for how to think Christianly about these emerging technologies and associated ethical challenges. What are the prospects, for better or worse, of AI, and what are some of the implications for the Church’s life and mission? Braden Molhoek & Ted Peters will give a presentation followed by engagement with a panel of faith leaders and audience Q&A.


Registration: General $35/ Reduced $15/ Student Free. There is free, available parking. Light refreshments provided. For more details on registration, please use this link.


Location: Palo Alto Christian Reformed Church, 94306
