August 9-11, 2019
Do You Often Reflect Upon Your John Jay Experience? What was the most impactful part of the program for you? Academics, Prayer, Hospitality Dinners, Fellowship?
Well, now you have the opportunity to experience all of these things again – those things that make the John Jay Institute so unique – during the first-ever John Jay Revisited Weekend. This special weekend will be held from August 9-11, 2019 at Fairview Manor, the home of the John Jay Institute, in Langhorne, PA.
Throughout the weekend, you and fellow alumni will read together from the Book of Common Prayer, grapple with the the topics you’ve read about in advance, and break bread together. In essence, you will "relive your John Jay Experience," whether that experience was in the Witherspoon, Saratoga, or John Jay Fellowship program.
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, so save your seat today! Registration closes on July 12. Not able to attend that weekend? Don't worry - we will be holding more of these events in the future.
All participants must arrive in Langhorne by 12:00 Noon on Friday and must stay through 4:00 pm on Sunday. If you are not able to be in attendance during this time frame, we ask that you please do not apply this time around. If you need to stay Thursday and Sunday nights to accommodate travel plans, that is fine with us! Most fellows will be housed in the bedrooms at the John Jay Institute (2 to a room), while a few will stay at the Schaller’s home.
Program Start: 12:00 Noon - Friday, August 9
Program End: 4:00 pm - Sunday, August 11
Morning & Evening Prayer
Each morning and evening, we will join together for a time of prayer, utilizing the Book of Common prayer to guide us.
We will hold academic seminar on Friday afternoon, Saturday morning and afternoon, and Sunday afternoon. The topic will be thematic, using books from the John Jay curriculum. All participants will receive the syllabus and copies of the books via mail one month prior to the weekend so they can complete the assigned readings in advance of the seminars. The focus will be on the ideas of developing a Christian Worldview and the legitimate goals of Christians as we seek to have a positive impact on an increasingly secular world.
Throughout the weekend, you will all break bread together, cooking and eating together in fellowship, in addition to attending a dinner at the home of the Schaller’s. All food and ingredients will be provided.
