Southeastern offers free educational tools to pastors and business leaders
January 19, 2017
What does it look like for people to wisely engage the intersection of work, faith and culture in daily life? A partnership between The Kern Family Foundation and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) has opened the door to examine this question. Southeastern invites pastors and the local community to attend an evening of compelling conversation addressing faithful interaction with today’s cultural issues on March 13th.
“Intersect: The Wisdom Forum” will be held at 6:30PM in Binkley Chapel on the SEBTS campus. Speakers include Jay Richards, NY Times bestselling author and assistant research professor at Catholic University of America; David Kim, executive director and pastor of faith and work at Redeemer Presbyterian Church; and Carolyn McCulley, author, speaker and filmmaker. Contributors from the Southeastern faculty will include Bruce Ashford, David Jones, Benjamin Quinn, Walter Strickland and Heath Thomas.
This event will consist of a series of brief, compelling TED Talk-style presentations.
Speakers at the Wisdom Forum will seek to answer, How does my faith impact my job? and How am I through my work contributing to God’s plan? The topics will focus on the intersection of faith, work and economics.
Ryan Hutchinson, executive vice president for operations at Southeastern, said, “Many of us in the business field are wondering how our faith impacts our work? This is a way for Southeastern to serve local business leaders by offering free educational tools related to work and economics.”
The faith, work and economics talks will enable attendees to grasp a deeper understanding of these topics to implement in the way they do business.
Admission is free, and guests are asked to register at sebts.edu/wisdom. Jubala coffee, dessert and books will be provided for attendees. The first 300 people to register will receive: “When Helping Hurts,” by Brian Fikkert & Steve Corbett; “Flourishing Faith: A Baptist Primer on Work, Economics, and Civic Stewardship,” by Chad Brand; and “Art & The Bible,” by Francis Schaeffer.
