We’ve been talking about the opportunity to join God in mission. We begin a two-part series by Nathan Hitchcock, SFS alumnus and professor. This week and next, Dr. Hitchcock will share his story and reflect upon what he’s learned about participating in God’s mission while continuing to learn.
Last week, President Greg Henson talked about how each of us have the opportunity to join God in mission. This week, Academic Vice President and Dean Ron Sisk hones in on the creativity and flexibility that Paul used in his approach to participating in the gospel.
Dr. Nathan Hitchcock, Associate Professor of Church History and Theology, was featured as a guest writer for the online journal Die Evangelischen Theologen. Hitchcock explored how, as Christians, our knowledge of God's final work informs our work in the here and now.
The Doctor of Ministry at Sioux Falls Seminary is a practical, professional program that enables individuals to reflect critically upon their vocations, engage in rigorous theological reflection and advanced learning experiences, and grow in ministry competence.
Many students at Sioux Falls Seminary discover God at work in various places in their lives as they balance ministry service, study, family, and work. Master of Divinity student Jeff Lathrop experienced God’s kingdom in his midst in a very profound and life-changing way over the last year. It began in November 2013.
In the New Year 2015 edition of In Trust Magazine, President Greg Henson provided some snapshots of data about theological education and some insights and actions that seminaries can take based on the data. What should Sioux Falls Seminary and others consider as we move from data to decision?
As we discuss the Kingdom of God, we want to say “thank you” to the countless individuals, groups, and organizations that join us as we follow God into mission. Our ability to develop students for their unique callings is enhanced when we partner with others and faithfully steward what we have.
Over the next few months at Sioux Falls Seminary we are venturing into a discussion of the Kingdom of God. It is a rich, but difficult, biblical theme! To gain a better understanding of the Kingdom of God, one of the best ways to start is by clarifying the saying of Jesus: “the Kingdom of God is among you.”
We serve a God of abundance. Rather than trying to build walls around our own little kingdoms, we are to be about the work of the Kingdom. At Sioux Falls Seminary, our work starts with the local church and moves from there. We walk alongside others as we cooperatively participate in God’s work.
Sioux Falls Seminary is excited to partner with Embrace Church in their endeavor to open a third campus in Sioux Falls. Through the partnership, Sioux Falls Seminary will serve as the site for Embrace's new Summit Avenue campus, which will launch in early 2015.
