Thus Far by Faith: Still Pressing Forward 

Child Advocacy, Child Well-being, and Justice 

Graduate Intensive | Dale P. Andrews Freedom Seminary 
at the 2024 Prathia Hall-Samuel DeWitt Proctor Institute for Child Advocacy Ministry 

July 15–18, 2024 | CDF Alex Haley Farm | Clinton, TN 

Hall-Proctor’s Dale P. Andrews Freedom Seminary offers an immersive experience for seminary students who wish to engage and cultivate necessary prophetic voices with communities on the margins—communities contending against systemic injustices that directly impact children and youth. In addition to participating in the full Hall-Proctor Institute, seminarians who attend DAFS spend the week learning from the greatest theological minds of our time. 

Who Can Attend

Hall-Proctor Institute invites graduate students who attend DAFS-affiliated seminaries and divinity schools the opportunity to participate for course credit in our Dale P. Andrews Freedom Seminary (DAFS). Those who are interested in registering for the credit-bearing graduate course must sign up through their seminary or university (to pay for and receive credit hours) as well as register for CDF’s Hall-Proctor Institute, which includes the DAFS sessions. DAFS sessions will take place Monday, July 15, 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. DAFS seminarians will then join in CDF’s Hall-Proctor Institute main sessions for the remainder of the week. 

Registration Options

DAFS students can participate in person or virtually. However, the full 2024 Hall-Proctor Institute is an in-person event only. 

For persons attending the Hall-Proctor Institute and DAFS in person: the registration cost is $200 for early registration and $250 for regular registration. This includes lunch and dinner Monday-Thursday. You will need to book your hotel separately (see here).  

A virtual attendance option is available for DAFS (Monday only): This option will give you access to the Zoom sessions on Monday, July 15, 2024, only. Please note that this registration option does not include access to the Hall-Proctor Institute. The virtual option is $100 for early bird registration and $150 for regular registration.
