Sirico Parables book

    Mark your calendars! The Acton Institute is pleased to announce that Rev. Timothy Keller will deliver the keynote address at this year’s Annual Dinner on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in downtown Grand Rapids. There will also be a special address from Acton president and cofounder, Rev. Robert A. Sirico.

    As the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, Keller is known for his vibrant ministry promoting faith in an urban culture. His books, including the New York Times best-selling The Reason for God and The Prodigal God, have sold over 1 million copies and been translated into 15 languages. The Center for Faith and Work, an outreach arm of the church he founded, focuses on connecting people to the gospel in and through their day-to-day work—a theme he will be speaking on when he joins Acton and our supporters this fall.

    Acton’s Annual Dinner is the largest single-day gathering the Institute hosts, drawing nearly 1,000 attendees each year. This event is both a celebration of the partnership Acton has with our donors, as well as a rallying cry to continue promoting the ideals of a free and virtuous society.

    In addition to single-seat tickets at $175, Acton is offering two levels of sponsorship for the Annual Dinner. A Liberty Circle sponsorship ($3,500) includes premier seating for a table of 10 and recognition on our website, as well as in the event program and marketing. Lord Acton’s Circle ($7,500) includes all of the above, along with complimentary drink tickets and two tickets to a private cocktail reception with Rev. Timothy Keller and Rev. Robert Sirico. A limited number of tickets are available for the Annual Dinner–secure your spot today!
