(JACKSON, Miss.) – Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson will host its 56th Convocation on August 25, 2021.
Convocation will launch RTS Jackson’s 2021-2022 academic year. Dr. John Fesko, Harriet Barbour Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, will give the address, entitled, “Jonah and the Fish: Hope in the Face of Death.”
Dr. Fesko commented, “After more than a year, and a challenging one at that, we are thrilled to be able to gather together in person again for chapel. Chapel is a time when we can pause from the labor of our day and reflect upon God’s mercy in Christ, but we can do so as a gathered community.”
Dr. Miles Van Pelt, Academic Dean for RTS Jackson, said, “Convocation marks the beginning of a new academic year where we come together, welcome new students, and consecrate ourselves to the labors of our calling to love Jesus and to serve his church.”
Jackson invites those from around the metro area to attend Convocation, which will begin at 11:00 am at Grace Chapel. Following the event, there will be a to-go lunch for students, faculty, and staff as they exit the chapel.
