CEAC in Nigeria in January

Jan. 10, 2014

by Joel Elowsky

The CEAC will be in Ogbomoso, Nigeria next week as guest of the Nigerian Baptist Seminary. Dr Joel Elowsky will be representing the CEAC, leading an introductory seminar on early African Christianity. This will be the fourth seminar held at the seminary during their mini-mester that is held in the month of January. The seminar will focus on the roots of early African Christianity, helping students explore some of the key figures in Africa's Christian history that helped shape world Christianity. The seminar will also look at some unique African contributions in the area of Christian Spirituality and the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, monasticism, martyrdom and the interpretation of Scripture. It promises to be an engaging week with eager students from the seminary.
