We continue to put the finishing touches on the August and Fall courses for the MDIV, and it’s looking pretty good.
August 3: The Pastor, Church, and World one week intensive course begins, taught by Russ Gunsalus, with a cast of seminary characters dropping in and out to orient everyone to the program.
August 9: The first seminary convocation takes place as students and adjuncts alike meet together. If you are an alumnus or alumna of IWU’s MA in Ministry program–or are currently in the program–feel free to join us at 6:30 in the student center banquet halls at IWU. All the new MDIV students will be there. Keith Drury will be speaking. Adjunct professors Charles Arn and Robert Vaughan will be there, as well as regular professors like Bob Whitesel and Ken Schenck and members of the newly formed undergraduate School of Ministry and Theology (the old Religion and Philosophy division).
August 10: The Cultural Contexts of Ministry one week intensive course begins, taught by Norm Wilson, covering everything from your local church demographics to the coming two thirds world Christianity.
