Featuring Diana Butler Bass, Ph.D.

The Office of Church Relations is very pleased to bring Diana Butler Bass, Ph.D. to teach and preach on Saturday, March 9, 2024.

Diana is an award-winning author, popular speaker, inspiring preacher, and one of America’s most trusted commentators on religion and contemporary spirituality.  

Diana’s passion is sharing great ideas to change lives and the world—a passion that ranges from informing the public about spiritual trends, challenging conventional narratives about religious practice, entering the fray of social media with spiritual wisdom and smart theology, and writing books to help readers see themselves, their place in history, and God differently.  She does this with intelligence, joy, and a good dose of humor, leading well-known comedian John Fugelsang to dub her “iconic,” the late Marcus Borg to call her “spontaneous and always surprising,” and Glennon Doyle to praise her “razor-sharp mind” and “mystical heart.”

Founders Day is an annual event sponsored by the Office of Church Relations, connecting students, staff, faculty and community members with an outstanding scholar in the area of religion and a renewal and reunion event for Disciples of Christ and United Church of Christ people.

REGISTER NOW or contact Ticketing Services at 714-997-6812. Their office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
