Mission & Purpose

The L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture seeks to engage culture as salt and light, presenting and defending the Christian faith and demonstrating its implications for all areas of human existence.

The Center has a two-fold purpose: (1) To convey graciously and apply effectively the Christian worldview to all areas of culture and to the human condition; (2) To encourage and support the Church in its redemptive work.

Date: Friday, March 15, 2013

Time: 7:00 pm

Place: Center for Faith and Culture Seminar Room, Patterson Hall, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Registration: This event is free of charge and open to the public. 

Lecture: The Juvenilization of American Christianity: What Can We Do to Promote Spiritual Maturity in Our Churches?

Many Americans are not sure they want to grow up.  Many Christians are not sure that spiritual maturity is either attainable or desirable.  Congregation members and their leaders can work together with God’s help to create a powerful congruence of teaching, modeling, and ministry structures that foster an attractive spiritual maturity.
