Bethel Seminary

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : July 12, 2005

Yesterday my friend Joel Nelson (Director of Church Mobilization at the Minnesota Baptist Conference) and I had a meeting with Greg Bourgond, Dean for Transformational Leadership at Bethel Seminary.  We’ve met with him before to discuss the possibility of having us teach a course called "Re:Envisioning the Church–An Adventure in Applied Ecclesiology."  Well, Dr. Bougond made the decision to run with it, so in Winter or Spring quarter of 2005/2006 I will be an adjunct instructor at Bethel! I’ll be taking classes as a student while I am teaching. Im both excited and weirded out.

I’ll post parts of my syllabus and whatnot later; I’d like to hear your feedback so that the class is worthwhile.

Mark Van Steenwyk is the editor of JesusManifesto.com. He is a Mennonite pastor (Missio Dei in Minneapolis), writer, speaker, and grassroots educator. He lives in South Minneapolis with his wife (Amy), son (Jonas) and some of their friends.

    Are you like my boss now? One day you are a student, the next day you are taking over the place....

    Yes Joseph, I am your boss now. I'm not sure whether I should promote you or fire you. It all depends upon my sovereign mood.

    Anyways, yeah, I'm really pumped about this. Dr. Bourgond is going to probably have the course slotted for Spring quarter...if you know of any students that might benefit from the course (a few Kern people come to mind), it would help alot. I really want to have well over 10 people registered for it.
