NETTERS CLASSES SUMMER 2015 TERM

ENROLL NOW!!!



Memphis Theological Seminary designed the Netters Certificate in Ministry for persons already active in ministry who are looking for ways to deepen and/or refresh their practice of ministry. Through six courses, participants in this program will develop knowledge and skills in biblical interpretation, relationships between churches, the development of biblical theology, preaching, theology and practice of varieties of ministry, and the building of ministry. To accommodate students, we offer classes on the weekends (Friday Nights and Saturday Mornings) and set the price for each class at only $185. Upon completion of the course, students will graduate with the Netters Certificate in Ministry from Memphis Theological Seminary.
We envision ministers, lay leaders, and potential lay leaders to enroll in these courses. We also see this program as continuing education for seasoned pastors—helping them stay sharp on continuing trends in pastoral ministry. Some may even use this certificate program as a foundational training course for church leaders or part of ordination requirements. Nevertheless, however one decides to use the program, the classes should help students understand more about the ministry they already do and help them discern God’s hand in their ministries.
             Below is the schedule for the upcoming classes for Summer 2015. New classes start June 5, 2015 and you can now enroll over the phone by calling 901-458-8232 or 901-334-5817!  This is the first of several new and exciting programs that the Netters Professorship will offer. We pray that you will take advantage of this educational opportunity.


Netters Classes for the Summer 2015 Term

Biblical Theology-Dr. William Rosser-(June 5-July 10, 2015)
What are the foundations of the Christian faith and how are they rooted in the Bible?  How do we build upon those foundations through our own faith reflections and sharing with others in pastoral contexts?  In this course, we will examine central Christian faith convictions in relation to the Bible.  We will also consider different approaches to our own work of doing biblically based theological reflection.

Proclaiming the Word-Dr. Andre Johnson-(June 6-July 11, 2015)
How do we effectively proclaim the Word of God?  How do we prepare and deliver a sermon that will be transformative for our hearers?  In this course, we will explore different ways of preparation for and engaging in the practice of preaching.

Dr. Obery Hendricks to Speak at G'Life

In celebration of Black History Month, Dr. Obery Hendricks will serve as gust speaker at our 8:00am service Sunday February 22. Dr. Hendricks is in town for the Barbara A. Holmes Lectures in African American Studies at Memphis Theological Seminary. Hendricks is one of the foremost commentators on the intersection of religion and politics in America. The scholar Cornel West calls him “one of the last few grand prophetic intellectuals.” Social critic Michael Eric Dyson calls him “one of the greatest intellectuals and most exciting scholars in America today.” 

A widely sought lecturer and media spokesperson, Dr. Hendricks’ has appeared on C-SPAN, PBS, National Public Radio, BBC, al-Jazeera Television, NHK Japan Television, Air-America, Radio One, the Voice of America, Fox News, Fox Business News, MSNBC, the Discovery Channel, the Bloomberg Network, and numerous local television and radio programs. He has been a member of the Faith Advisory Council of the Democratic National Committee, where he delivered the closing benediction of the 2008 Democratic Convention; served on the National Religious Leaders Advisory Committee of the 2008 Democratic Presidential campaign and currently serves on the Religion and Foreign Policy Working Group at the U. S. Department of State. He is a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Democracy at Work in New York City, an Affiliated Scholar at the Center for American Progress and serves on the board of the Public Religion Research Institute in Washington, DC. Dr. Hendricks is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post, an occasional contributor to Sojourners magazine and the award-winning Tikkun magazine, and a contributing editor to The Encyclopedia of Politics and Religion. The Dictionary of Biblical Interpretation has called his work “the boldest post-colonial writing ever seen in Western biblical studies.” 

“Essential reading for Americans,” is how the Washington Post described Hendricks’ bestselling book, The Politics of Jesus: Rediscovering the True Revolutionary Nature of Jesus’ Teachings and How They Have Been Corrupted (Doubleday, 2006). Michael Dyson proclaimed it “an instant classic” that “immediately thrusts Hendricks into the front ranks of American religious thinkers.” The Politics of Jesus was the featured subject of the 90 minute C-SPAN special, “Class, Politics and Christianity.” His most recent book, The Universe Bends Toward Justice: Radical Reflections on the Bible, the Church and the Body Politic (Orbis, 2011), has been termed a “tour de force” by both scholars and politicians.

A former Wall Street investment executive and past president of Payne Theological Seminary, the oldest African American theological seminary in the United States, Dr. Hendricks is currently a Visiting Scholar at Columbia University in the Department of Religion and the Institute for Research in African American Studies, and Professor Emeritus of Biblical Interpretation at New York Theological Seminary. He holds the Master of Divinity with academic honors from Princeton Theological Seminary, and both the M.A. and Ph.D. in Religions of Late Antiquity from Princeton University.

#GlifeTEL: Film Viewing and Discussion: Slavery By Another Name




As part of the Teach Eat and Learn Symposium (#GlifeTEL), join Gifts of Life Ministries as they celebrate Black History Month and the #BlackLivesMatter campaign, by holding a viewing and discussion of "Slavery by Another Name" Wednesday Night, February 11 at 6:30pm. Lisa Jones Johnson, owner of 4 Peaceful Resolutions, will facilitate the discussion following the viewing of the film.

According to the production material, the "film challenges one of our country’s most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery ended with Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. The documentary recounts how in the years following the Civil War, insidious new forms of forced labor emerged in the American South, keeping hundreds of thousands of African Americans in bondage, trapping them in a brutal system that would persist until the onset of World War II.

Based on Douglas Blackmon’s research, Slavery by Another Name spans eight decades, from 1865 to 1945, revealing the interlocking forces in both the South and the North that enabled this “neoslavery” to begin and persist. Using archival photographs and dramatic re-enactments filmed on location in Alabama and Georgia, it tells the forgotten stories of both victims and perpetrators of neoslavery and includes interviews with their descendants living today."


We serve dinner at 5:30pm and the event is free. For more information call the church at 901-236-7095.
