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.
