New Term Starting for the Netters Certificate Program

Our pastor and the Dr. James L. Netters Professor at Memphis Theological Seminary, Rev. Dr. Andre E. Johnson, is pleased to announce the start of a new term for the Netters Certificate Program. The two classes offered this term are Proclaiming the Word and Biblical Theology. Below are the descriptions, dates and times for the classes. For more information, call 901-458-8232 .

Proclaiming the Word-Friday Nights from 5:30pm-9:00pm
Professor: Dr. Christopher Davis

(June 7-July 20, 2013)

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.

Biblical Theology-Saturday Mornings from 9:00am-12:30pm

Professor: Dr. Andre E. Johnson

(June 8-July 20, 2013)
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.

Gifts of Life Ministries
The Urban Oasis
Presents the:
G'Life Summer Camp
Monday - Friday
7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
(For children ages 3-15). 
Starting June 3, 2013!!
Enroll your child today!!
The cost is only $50.00 per week, per child. This fee includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and a host of activities.

Dear Friend of G'Life,

As we start our 8th Summer Camp, we expect this to be one of the best. In the past, our field trips were memorable, the arts and crafts were beautiful as the church's walls attested, and we have always had some of the most gifted and talented children around. However, we expect even a bigger and greater camp this year.

The reason for this letter is that we are embarking on a new campaign. We call it the "100 with 50 campaign and its very simple--we are looking for 100 people who can donate $50.00 to our Summer Camp. I know that $5000 is not a large amount for many ministers and non-profits, but for us, it is huge. This small donation will be enough to take us through our ten week camp, helping us with supplies, food, field trips and much more.

I ask you to watch the video (again) and please share this email with others. Remember that we focus on principles that highlight self-esteem and respect for oneself and others. We also hope to promote at the camp what we call a culture of learning that not only engage campers in the arts of music, drama, oratory, poetry, and dance, but it is our prayer that we can also promote a desire for learning.

If you are able to help and desire to be a part of the 100 with 50 campaign, please click here. If you would like to mail your donation, please send it to:
Gifts of Life Ministries
1542 Jackson Memphis, Tenn. 38107
Please make checks payable to: G'Life Summer Camp

If have any questions or want to donate in any of these ways, please call me at 901-272-7337.
Thank you and may God continue to bless you and yours!

Rev. Andre Johnson, PhD
Senior Pastor
