Have you ever wonderedâ¦
- How does faith intersect with culture?
- Is full-time Christian ministry more valuable than work in the secular sphere?
- Is it good to be motivated by money?
- Is your job merely a platform to share the gospel, or is there something more to it?
You’ll address these questions and more in the Mentorship Program at the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
The Mentorship Program is designed to mentor a small number of students interested in thinking critically about crucial cultural issues in light of biblical Christianity. The format will examine different areas of culture to identify basic assumptions, beliefs and values that give shape to the prevailing ideas and practices of Western culture.
The end goal is to think about how evangelical Christianity might respond in a constructive, but corrective fashion. Our discipleship under Jesus Christ should lead us to value human flourishing and work to serve the common good of all our communities.
The group will meet monthly with Dr. Kenneth Keathley and other guest speakers for thought-provoking discussions. Group members will also have assignments including short selected readings, questions for discussion and/or selected subjects for research.
The program begins in Fall 2017 and goes through Spring 2018. The application deadline is August 26, 2017.
