Christian Life

Christival

What can be more uplifting than praising the Lord and learning about Him through song and rousing talks given by some of the most dynamic Christian leaders in the world?

PBA does exactly that over several days each semester for Christival, a long-standing PBA tradition of praise, worship and learning. Christival began in the 1980s, making it the longest-standing conference at PBA.

Speaking of PBA...

“Christival is an opportunity for the entire PBA community to wholeheartedly engage God in worship and the Word, and it also sets the stage for PBA as a whole to say, ‘Come, Holy Spirit. Have your way,’”
-- Bernie Cueto, Ph.D., Campus Pastor, Palm Beach Atlantic University.
