Union Presbyterian Seminary will host Seminary for a Day on September 28, on the Richmond campus at 3401 Brook Road. The event will include keynote speakers, a variety of workshops by seminary professors, and a taste of theological education. It intends to offer new perspectives and resources for a variety of church leaders and members.
"Seminary for a Day is one of the ways we can make our educational resources available for congregations,” according to Ken McFayden, dean of the seminary's Leadership Institute. "Our faculty members enjoy speaking and leading workshops in which they can share their knowledge and skills with church members and leaders."
Keynote speaker Beverly Zink-Sawyer, professor of preaching and worship, will address how the church and seminary may navigate the 21st century together. Keynote speaker Kenda Creasy Dean, professor of youth, church and culture at Princeton Theological Seminary, will examine what video games and the National Study of Youth and Religion can teach us about being a church that matters.
Seminary for a Day offers people an educational experience which is relevant and applicable to daily ministry. “I didn’t know what to expect and was so pleased to be able to take pieces from every part of the day back with me,” said a participant from the event in 2012. “Absolutely one of the best educational experiences I have had.”
