We as a staff bid farewell to Mickey Cox as he moves to Kissimmee, Florida.  He’ll be back for District Assembly Conference, but will begin his work as Minister of Discipleship and Youth now at the Kissimmee First Church of the Nazarene.   We are thrilled to see this opportunity for Mickey and believe God will richly bless his endeavors.

Tracing the Story of God 2021

 

This class is July 9-10 and July 16-17, 2021 and is taught by Rev. Scott Simons at Lakewood Church of the Nazarene.
 

We read and teach from the Scriptures as a guide to knowing God, and as our authority for living in relationship with Him. The study of Biblical theology attempts to synthesize various strands of the story of God’s saving work found in the Bible, while recognizing that Scripture is not a systematic theology text. As Wesleyans, we hold the Protestant conviction that Scripture is the foundational source for all theological reflection, and that authentically Christian preaching and ministry must develop responsibly from the text. The goal of this module is to guide students in thinking about the Bible beyond a collection of loosely-related stories, or simply a compendium of the literature of ancient Israel and the Early Church. It is this, but also essential for defining contemporary Christian worldview, faith and practice.

How do we move from the ancient text of the Bible to the Apostles’ Creed? And from there to a developed theological system like Wesleyanism? How do we preach from the Bible in a way that gives equal weight to its ancient origins in a distinct cultural, social, economic, and political environment dramatically different from ours, and to the pressing needs of those who gather each week in our churches needing to hear an edifying message? The task of biblical theology for us as ministers is to sort through the witness to God’s involvement in the lives of ancient people to discern timeless truths that shape our understanding of God and life as His people in the present and to form our aspirations for the future.

 
 
Examining Our Christian Heritage II 2021

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

A survey course from a Wesleyan perspective that traces the social forces (‘sacred’ and ‘secular’) contributing to the development of Western civilization in global context from the Reformation era to the present. The study of key events, ideas, personalities, and movements that have contributed to the major periods of history and the passages between them increases students’ understanding of and appreciation for God’s redemptive purposes. Students are enabled to build bridges from historical understanding to personal spiritual formation, the role of church in society, and contemporary ministry.

This class is taught by Dr. Andrew J. Pottenger.

Friday, August 6, 6:00-10:00 p.m.

Saturday, August 7, 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
