The 2016 Summer Institute
We live in a broken world and broken lives abound in it. Pastors and church elders are increasingly tasked with providing counsel, and many seek new tools to do so. But are there some old tools that speak to this need? What does the Westminster Confession, for example, have to say about pastoral care?
Greenville Seminary's 2016 Summer Institute, a week-long seminar for pastors and Christian laymen, will delve into this unique topic.
Dr. Chad B. Van Dixhoorn will lecture on "The Westminster Assembly and Pastoral Care." The study will be held on the GPTS campus Aug. 1-5.
Make a vacation out of this trip to South Carolina by tying this institute in with the seminary's course on Southern Presbyterian Theology, Aug. 8-12, which includes exciting excursions to historical sites in beautiful Charleston and Columbia.
Pastors who take the course are eligible for continuing education credits. Others may receive credits for an M.Div. degree. Tuition for the institute is $225. Take $25 off additional registrations should anyone from your church attend with you. Designated GPTS presbytery representatives may receive a $50 discount. To become a presbytery rep, contact Garry Moes. Lunch will be offered to any presbytery reps attending the Institute on a day to be announced.
