Carl Ellis to Teach Cultural & Historical Realities for Contextualized Ministry, Jan 22-24

RTS Jackson is pleased to announce that Dr. Carl Ellis, Jr. will be teaching Cultural and Historical Realities for Contextualized Ministry in a three-day intensive format during our Winter Term, January 22-24.  

Designed to help prepare those who will be doing ministry in African American, multiethnic, or urban contexts, this class will explore hidden forces behind cultural conflict and will suggest biblical ways to address these conflicts.  Competing value systems and various social visions will be analyzed, and the course will include new biblically-based categories and concepts to help address today’s cultural confusion.  

Dr. Carl Ellis is the President of Project Joseph, Assistant Professor of Practical Theology at Redeemer Seminary, Adjunct Faculty at Westminster Theological Seminary, and Associate Pastor at New City Fellowship.  He completed his B.A. at Hampton University, his M.A. at Westminster Theological Seminary, and his D.Phil. at Oxford Graduate School.

This two-semester hour class will meet from 8:00am to 5:00pm, from Wednesday, January 22 through Friday, January 24.
