TCL107: Christ and Culture

Friday, Sept. 22   5-9pm

Saturday, Sept. 23   9am-5pm

David “Duffy” Robbins, Grove City College

This course will survey some of the broad contours of culture, as well as how these cultural realities impact the way we “live and move and have our being…” (borrowed from Acts 17:28). Aside from exploring the cultural landscape, this course will focus on three essential questions:

  • What is the nature of our engagement as Christians with a culture that is not-Christian?
  • How are we to think about and respond to products and artifacts produced by the culture?
  • How do we communicate the gospel into the language and context of another culture not our own?

    Church leadership in the 21st century is not easy. And whether you’re a seasoned veteran or brand new to ministry, whether you are a pastor, a church staff member or a volunteer leader looking to step up your game, there are some basic ministry skills that didn’t come in the “how to be a church leader” instruction manual. In this class, students will learn key skills for real-life modern ministry. Skills like how to lead a bible study, practical discipleship principles, how to build a team, how to conduct a meeting and communicate effectively, how to care for those who are hurting and how to respond to someone in crisis. Students can expect a deeply practical course with seasoned instructors built on biblical foundations.
