Join Dr. Gregg R. Allison as he teaches on ecclesiology on October 1-2, 2016. This Alumni Academy will cover the material from Dr. Allison’s much acclaimed work Sojourners and Strangers: The Doctrine of the Church (Crossway, 2012).
The goal of this Alumni Academy is that church leaders will be able to view their ministry from a robustly biblical and theological framework. The class will be a theology of the church and treat the following issues: the church of the new covenant; the attributes, or identity markers, of the church; the growth of the church in terms of purity, unity, and discipline; the government of the church, including its offices (eldership and diaconate), its polity, and various models of church governance; the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; and the ministries of the church. This class is for pastors and leaders who are in the trenches of ministry and want to consider their work in light of a sound theology of the church.
