Emerging Church focus of free Seminary class

Key aspects of the Emerging Church are the focus of a free class taught by Baptist Bible Seminary Dean Dr. Mike Stallard, a special opportunity for students who have never taken a class at BBS before.

The free course will be offered on campus Tuesday-Friday, January 7-10, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. daily.

For details and registration information, call 800.451.2287 or email BBSadmissions@bbc.edu.

"Spotlight on Issues in Theology: Emerging Church" explains the underpinnings of the theology of those who call themselves the Emerging Church. In addition, the theological and philosophical backgrounds will be analyzed relative to church and culture using a biblical grid for truth.

While being largely negative toward the Emerging movement, the class will highlight some valid concerns about church work which those in this movement have raised.

The Emerging Church is marked by its questioning established evangelical Christian doctrine and ways of doing church and worship.

Dr. Stallard is a veteran ministry leader and a founding member of the Council on Dispensational Hermeneutics, which held its fifth meeting last year in Houston, TX.

The class is a one-credit course and is free for pastors, missionaries, and others who have never taken a course at BBS before. Students may also take it as a regular paid credit.

It offers a unique opportunity for potential seminary students to experience a class and learn more about BBS. Time to visit the campus, meet professors, and learn about many financial aid opportunities are also available. Limited on-campus housing is available for $15 a night.

Baptist Bible Seminary offers students a genuine blend of rigorous academic content and transformational hands-on applications. Six advanced degrees are available in several flexible formats.
