The growing prison population of young, urban centered males is at epidemic levels. Moreover, the issues of urban education seem to be mounting at an exponential rate: drop out, inadequate classrooms, burned out teachers.  Higher test scores are only part of the solution. Jawanza Kunjufu in the epic book, Countering The Conspiracy To Destroy Black Boys, argues that 3rd and 4th grade are pivotal years for young boys-in particular-in that this is a time that if not educated well encouraged, aided in their development, the life before them is grim (1982, 8-13).

September 24, 2013, at 2:00 pm CST

Featuring Daniel White Hodge, North Park University

Several opportunities to enrich your ministry

North Park Theological Seminary students have just returned from spring break, and the campus is once again busy with activity. Here are a few opportunities happening this spring and summer that we want to share with you:

 

Certificate Programs

We are offering two graduate certificate programs-spiritual direction and urban ministry-that begin this summer, both of which are designed to help support and strengthen your ministry.

Spiritual Direction: Examine this specialized ministry of listening, discernment, and prayer at our C. John Weborg Center for Spiritual Direction. Benefit from a creative cohort learning community and high-quality instruction to join a growing worldwide network of trained spiritual directors.

Apply online by March 31.

Urban Ministry: Integrate theology and practice to prepare for the changing needs of ministry in an urban setting. On-site summer intensive courses allow you to use Chicago as your classroom, and you’ll have the opportunity to study with Dr. Soong-Chan Rah,a leading scholar and practitioner in multicultural ministry.

Apply online by April 30.

Participate in either certificate program with a cohort group of fifteen to twenty clergy and lay students. You can complete the required 15 semester hours, including on-site summer intensives and online courses, in just over two years.

Tuition is approximately $7,500, and payment plans and limited financial assistance are available. For more information, please contact the Office of Seminary Admissions via email or at (773) 244-6229.

Nyvall Lectures

You’re invited to join us on campus on Thursday, April 18, from 9:00 am to noon, as we host our annual Nyvall Lectures in Isaacson Chapel.

Dr. Willie Jennings, professor at Duke Divinity School, will deliver a two-part lecture entitled, “An Obedient and Loving Church: Toward an Ecclesiology that Matters.” You can attend this lecture either in person or online via live webcast, courtesy of covchurch.tv.

Songwriting Workshop

We are also offering Songwriting for Christian Worship on Saturday, April 20. Designed with pastors and worship leaders in mind, this hands-on workshop will equip you and others in your congregation with a solid framework for writing powerful, effective songs for worship.
