Chesterton House: A Center for Christian Study at Cornell has gathered a number of kindred ministry leaders, alumni, faculty, and students to help organize the Sayers Conference. In collaboration, we have dreamed up a conference to bring a diversity of voices, generations, and callings together to think through what it means to do work to the glory of God. Leaning on the wisdom of alumni, the conference schedule includes two breakout panels and a keynote address from writer, Andy Crouch ’90.
A special thanks to the organizers and cosponsors of this year’s Sayers Conference:
Since 2002, Christian Union has worked to help bring sweeping spiritual change to America. The ministry’s work is focused in three areas: developing bold Christian leaders at the most strategic and profoundly influential universities in America; building networks of Christian leaders in cities; and promoting national revival through the Christian Union Day & Night online ministry.
Claritas: A Journal for Christian Thought
The Cornell Claritas is an ecumenical, interdenominational Christian publication that was founded on the hope of starting thoughtful Christian conversations within the academic community. Through our journal, blog, and events, we seek to articulate and connect the truth of Christ to every person and every study. We are a member of The Augustine Collective, an independent network of Christian journals on college campuses.
Originally founded as Campus Crusade for Christ in 1951 as a ministry on the UCLA campus, Cru is a community passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ. Our purpose is helping to fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith and sending them to win and build others and helping the body of Christ to do evangelism and discipleship through a variety of creative ways.
InterVarsity is a vibrant campus ministry that establishes and advances witnessing communities of students and faculty. We believe that God has called us to reach every corner of every campus and that when you change the university, you change the world. For over 75 years, InterVarsity has had a vital presence on hundreds of college campuses, courageously proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Savior, engaging in discipleship around Scripture, and loving people of every ethnicity and culture.
Johnson Christian Fellowship

Campus on a Hill
COAH is a group that facilitates the networking and collaboration between Christian Fellowships and local Churches at Cornell and the Ithaca community towards the continual work of seeing God’s name proclaimed and glorified on Cornell’s campus. We aim to unite the body of Christ at Cornell by creating a culture of gospel centered discipleship through promoting and planning events that encourage edifying worship, great preaching and teaching, life changing community, strong emphasis on evangelism, concern for social justice, and cultural engagement.
