Ron Benefiel
August 24, 2010 The Christian University: A Kingdom Community in Education
Dr. Ron Benefiel, President of Nazarene Theological Seminary, presented the keynote address to the faculty and administration of TNU. The keynote address laid the theological foundation for participation in Christian community. Participants discussed the address and created questions for Dr. Benefiel.
In session 2, Dr. Benefiel introduced the idea of being a missional people, participating in God's mission to the world. Faculty and administrators conducted an extended discussion of these concepts and reported to the whole group.
Following lunch, five people provided a delightful time of light entertainment. Leroy Pepper played two songs on his harmonica. Matthew Huddleston recited The Cremation of Sam McGee (which fit well with the temperature in the convocation center). Roy Philip showed his talent for magic, and Judy Tullis and Matt Murdock played a piano-trumpet duet.
A panel of Kathy Mowry, Heather Bryant, Leroy Pepper, and David Diehl answered questions about how TNU can prepare graduates to actively engage in the missio dei, God's mission.
The closing session addressed ways to remove barriers to Christian community.
