Jan 7-8, 2022

This annual 24-hour retreat brings international students and visiting scholars around a compelling vision to see God bring the culture of corruption, found in so many of our societies, to its knees. Participation, which includes overnight housing in a Minneapolis-area home as well as four meals (Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, Saturday lunch, Saturday dinner), is underwritten by generous donors. Participants are, however, asked to purchase a copy of Taming the Beast: Can We Bridle the Culture of Corruption? on Electronic copies are $3, and printed copies are $13 each. Alternatively, copies may be purchased for $10 (postage paid) from the Academy (mail a check, with street address, to Wilberforce International Institute, 1473 Clarmar Ave, Roseville MN 55113).
