Thursday, January 16, 2020 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
The Theological Studies Lecture Series is held during the residency week for the M.A. in Theological Studies program (MATS). While the residency week is designed for students in the program, the keynote presentation is open to the public for free. Our hope is that this opportunity will benefit all leaders, ministers, and indivduals who are interested in expanding their biblical and theological foundation. We invite you to come and get a glimpse of what students experience at LPU.
Theology and Education in Pentecostal Communities
The lecture series will be focused on the theme of Theology and Education in Pentecostal Communities. We will explore some of the questions below:
- Is theological education important for Pentecostal Churches/movements/denominations?
- Is there a distinctive way Pentecostals could do or are doing theological education?
- Is theological education important within the ecclesial context? If so, what should it be trying to do?
- What are areas within theology and/or biblical studies that still need to be explored by Pentecostals?
- What are the distinctive approaches Pentecostals have developed to do theology and biblical studies?
