The School of Cultural Engagement consists of a total of 8 weeks of classes designed to inform and equip you in bringing transformation to your world. Come join us for an intensive time of learning about the state of affairs in the American church and society, and find out what you can do to affect your culture through the gospel!
NOTE: These classes will not be available online, but can be purchased on CD through FIRE School of Ministry following the event.
The following 6 classes will be held in the evenings and are free and open to the general public.
* June 15-18 – Only Genesis: The Basis to Interpret the Bible and Life (Taught by John C. Rankin)
Learn how the foundations for life and living are found in the book of Genesis from the founder and host of the Mars Hill Forum Series, where his goal is to provide freedom for the toughest questions of the Gospel to be posed in a hospitable and intellectually rigorous setting. Your perspectives will be dramatically changed by this course!
* June 22-25 – Reclaiming Godly Sexuality (Taught by Joe Dallas)
How is sexuality a discipleship issue? What are the physical, spiritual and emotional ramifications of stepping outside of Created Intent regarding human sexuality? Hear answers to these and other important questions from nationally recognized pastoral counselor Joe Dallas.
* June 29-July 2 – It’s Time to Rock the Boat (Taught by Michael L. Brown)
It is high time that we recover the message of Jesus and the apostles. Our compromised message has produced a compromised generation of believers, and only a return to the New Testament gospel, preached in the power of the Spirit, can turn the tide. Taught by the president of FIRE School of Ministry, this course will open your eyes and set your hearts ablaze for Jesus!
* July 6-9 – Cultural Apologetics (Taught by Frank Turek)
Surveys indicate that 80% of Christian young people fall away from the Lord within their first year in secular colleges, while nationally, less than 20% of born-again Christians hold to foundational biblical truths. This essential course, taught by leading apologist Frank Turek, will strengthen your faith, answer your questions, and equip you for effective witness.
* July 13-16 – Separation of Church and State (Taught by Joseph Infranco)
Christian students on campuses have been told they cannot publicly share their faith; atheists are taking legal action against the National Day of Prayer; the courts have decided that homosexual rights trump religious rights. This course, taught by senior counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund Joe Infranco, will give you an understanding of the real meaning of the separation of church and state.
* July 20-23 – Engaging Culture, Congress, and the Media (Taught by Patrick J. Mahoney)
How does the gospel intersect with culture? What is the church’s role in society? How can we take the gospel into the streets and into our communities? How can we influence Congress and the media? Pat Mahoney, who has been on the front lines of cultural engagement for more than twenty-five years, will provoke you to godly action and inspire you to rise up and change your world in the life and power of the Spirit.
