STRONG STUDENTS.

Wake Divinity’s commitment to fostering community through dialogue has expanded my understanding of what it means to be Christian in a pluralistic society. I have found a safe place to ask questions and explore meaning as I pursue my vocational calling.

STRONGER

COMMUNITIES. Preparing students to serve and lead communities is at the heart of our mission. Religious and Ethical Studies is one of our many undergraduate programs that fosters understanding of global perspectives. And through our community-based learning and international service programs, Meredith students go out into the world to help others.

Transform our spiritual selves with the time-honored disciplines of prayer.

Elevating Preaching

October 3, 2016 Campbell University Divinity School Elevating Preaching 2016 will focus on Empowering Laity for Missional Living with a theme of “As You Go!” “Therefore, as you go, disciple people in all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19 (ISV) For more information (June 2016), visit www.cbfnc.org.

page 22

Elevating Preaching is a conference that began years ago with a challenge from Walter B. “Buddy” Shurden to “elevate preaching.” CBFNC accepted the challenge and responded with two preaching conferences connected to the annual CBFNC General Assembly. Continuing to seek opportunities to model good preaching and nurture leadership, CBFNC partnered with Campbell Divinity School (2011), Gardner-Webb School of Divinity (2012), Wake Forest School of Divinity (2013) and Duke Baptist House of Studies (2014) to co-sponsor the annual event. On Monday, October 3, 2016, the Elevating Preaching Conference resumes with Campbell University Divinity School as host and co-sponsor with CBFNC. Walter Brueggemann, who is considered to be one of the most influential Old Testament scholars of the last several decades, is the featured preacher/speaker. Joining Brueggemann for the one day conference in Buies Creek are John Kinney who is Dean of the School of Theology at Virginia Union University in Richmond, VA, and Dorisanne Cooper who is the Senior Pastor at Watts Street Baptist Church in Durham.
