Why a GRASSROOTS CHRISTIANITY Learning Cohort?
or the Trouble with Elites & Hacks
There are plenty of elite academics in ivory towers, trained in the latest intellectual fashions and fanciest words. But these have lost sight of the questions, doubts, hopes, and fears of everyday people.
And then there are the hack theologians. They offer pious sounding words ripped from the headlines and the Bible. They promise to revitalize your faith in two easy steps, banishing all doubts, and bringing you peace and joy. But they don't.
Learning cohort leader, Dr. David Fitch, is neither.
He is both a pastor and professor, a theologian and church planter.
With over 20 years of pastor experience, and teaching hundreds of pastors and leaders, he will guide you through the thorny topic of Jesus, the Church, and Politics.
WHAT'S THE CONTENT FOR THE COHORT?
Dr. Fitch will guide the cohort through 6 weeks of reckoning with power, structured through pulling up the ROCKS in our field of faith, planting new SEEDS, and ending by pulling up the WEEDS that may remain.
Oct. 13—ROCKS: What is power? What are the Powers?
Oct. 20—SEEDS: The Powers in Scripture
Oct. 27—SEEDS: The Powers in Church History
Nov. 3—SEEDS: The Powers in Evangelicalism
Nov. 10—WEEDS: The Right Side of History or the Wrong Side of Power
Nov. 17—WEEDS: Where do we go from here?
THE SYLLABUS FOR THE LEARNING COHORT WILL BE POSTED SOON.
