Building on the legacy of Michael Cromartie (1950-2017), founder of Faith Angle Forum, MCF brings together a select group of exceptionally talented, early-career journalists, for a three-day conference in the nation’s capital, examining the intersection of faith, culture, and contemporary public life. This year’s forum will focus on shifting patterns in some of our leading institutions, the relationship between faith and vocational journalism, and the challenges and opportunities of cultivating truly diverse newsrooms that reflect and enrich our national life.
