Scripture deepens our faith and strengthens our hearts but reading the Bible in a way that fosters transformation can be difficult, since comprehending it can be challenging and frustrating. This is why at the Applied Biblical Studies Conference, you receive teaching and instruction from a team of world-renowned Scripture scholars and authors who make understanding Scripture easier for both those new to the Bible and those who have been studying it for years. This training, coupled with powerful prayer, will not only enlighten your mind but renew your heart. The Applied Biblical Studies Conference will make the Bible come alive for you and help you integrate it more completely into your life.
“There is something powerful about hundreds of Catholics coming together from all over the world to learn, fellowship and praise our Lord, Jesus Christ together at the Applied Biblical Studies Conference. It is extremely encouraging. Our Catholic Men’s Fellowship came for our second year and we loved it even more, especially praying with people and other groups. Thanks to Franciscan University for catalyzing a fire within the hearts of Catholics fortunate enough to attend these conferences!”2017 Applied Biblical Studies Participant
“The conference and the speakers propelled us along our journey as my wife and I are just beginning the process to deepen our relationship with Jesus. I believe the University and the conferences are one of God’s blessings for His people manifest on earth.”2017 Applied Biblical Studies Participant
“It can be hard in parish setting to find other people who want to ‘go deep’ into Scripture. Learning from the speakers and other attendees at the Applied Biblical Studies Conference is like a booster shot that keeps us going for another year.”2017 Applied Biblical Studies Participant
“The Applied Biblical Studies Conference truly does what it signifies. I understood the Book of Acts in light of the Holy Spirit and how to applied it to my life. It was enlightening to know that the Church is still living the Book of Acts. It was grace filled, especially through prayers, praise and worship, and the Eucharist! Praise God for inviting me to this conference!”2017 Applied Biblical Studies Participant

Prophecy and Typology:
Understanding Our Times in the Light of God’s Story
“For whatever was written previously was written for our instruction, that by endurance and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope.” – Romans 15:4
We can only understand where we’re going when we begin to understand our history. The Old Testament prophets foretold the coming of our Lord and all that He would bring into our lives, and their words still contain wisdom for us today and give us hope for the future.
This summer at the Applied Biblical Studies Conference, come and learn from the prophetic words of our spiritual ancestors and receive the encouragement that their messages hold, so that you may go forth and proclaim the Word of God in joy.

Be An Ambassador
“Go, Rebuild My Church”
Jesus gave St. Francis the mission to “Go, rebuild My Church.” That is the mission of Steubenville Conferences. We invite you to share our mission by helping us spread the word about our outreach and inviting people to have their own life-changing encounter with Jesus at one of our dynamic conferences.

STEUBENVILLE DISCIPLESHIP QUADS
There is nothing like a mountain-top encounter with the love of Jesus – it’s coming down from the mountain that can be scary. Franciscan University of Steubenville has created Steubenville Discipleship Quads to help you come down from the mountain and get right on a path that will lead you to a closer walk with Christ.
A Steubenville Discipleship Quad is a group of four men or women who are committed to growing together as disciples through communal prayer, sharing personal experiences, and following the provided curriculum, accompanying each other into a deeper relationship with Christ.
Following Jesus: You don’t have to do it alone.
