A Theology of Gender: June 28 and 29

Dr. Sam Andreades, Sr. Pastor of Faith Reformed Presbyterian Church of Quarryville, is founder of Higher Ground, a New York City ministry serving people with unwanted same-sex attraction, a work growing out of eleven years as a pastor in Greenwich Village. Dr. Andreades also wrote enGendered: God’s Gift of Gender Difference in Relationship,the 2015 World Magazine Book of the Year (Accessible Theology), built on his dissertation work on intimacy in marriage from gender distinction.  He currently hosts the website, AffirmingGender.com, writing and speaking at conferences around the country on gender issues. He has counseled many engaged, married and single people, as well as gay-identifying and transgender folks, about God’s precious gift.

Sam and his wife, Mary K., have been married for almost thirty years, raising four children in the Lord. He was educated at Yale University (B.S.), New York University (M.S.), Reformed Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and Covenant Seminary (D.Min.).

You can do this! You can effectively talk about gender in the midst of our current culture’s gender disintegration. Whether it is aiding men struggling with same-sex attraction, helping women struggling with the Bible’s words on submission, walking with teens struggling with their bodies, encouraging those with transition regrets, or speaking compassionately and truthfully about transgenderism, you can bring Christ’s truth and power to bear in restoring His precious image-bearing gift. We’ll see how a few simple Biblical principles give practical guidance to real change and freedom.  The culture has the problems. The Bible, as usual, has the answers.

Schedule:

Fri, June 28, 1 PM to 3 PM
Sat, June 29, 1 PM to 3 PM

Reading Materials:

  • enGendered: God’s Gift of Gender Difference in Relationship by Dr. Sam Andreades, available online

Evangelism Explosion: August 20 to 25

 Mr. Matthew Cummings: Missionary to Japan with WEC International, church planter, evangelism trainer, sports fan, and father of five

Evangelism Explosion is a gospel-sharing tool now taught in every country in the world.  Developed from Coral Ridge Church in FL by the late D. James Kennedy, EE trains lay believers to clearly, graciously, and persuasively share their faith.  Using this program, Dr. Kennedy’s church literally exploded from life-support level of 17 members to 10,000 in several years; our evangelism will be strengthened by his approach as well.
Come learn with us how to:
  • Lead into the gospel in a natural way with anyone
  • Diagnose a persons’ basis of assurance of their salvation
  • Explain the gospel in a grace-based way, with points, illustrations, and transitions
  • Go out and actually share the gospel with people on the Boardwalk
  • Experience the joy and eternal reward of leading a person to faith in Christ
“Come follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” – Jesus Christ

Please join us! All lectures are free and there is currently housing at the Chapel available for any friends who would like to stay overnight for a small donation!

 

You Last Forever Training Conference for Evangelism and Discipleship: Aug 26 to Sept 3

By Pastor Dick Fisher, Founder of You Last Forever Ministries, www.YouLastForever.com

Testimonial by Professor William D. Dennison, Ph.D., teaching elder in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church: I was privileged and honored to have Rev. Richard Fisher present a session of his evangelism program, You Last Forever, to my two Covenant College Doctrine classes this semester. I found it confessionally Reformed, instructive, informative, and easy to follow. I was pleased to hear how comprehensive Rev. Fisher’s presentation is of the gospel found in our Savior, Jesus Christ. I was also pleased about the importance of Christ’s church in his presentation. My perception was that most of my students welcomed Rev. Fisher’s presentation in light of their own concern for the lost. I sensed they were enriched themselves, and will hopefully be more fully equipped with the gospel in the marketplace. I highly recommend and commend You Last Forever for the Boardwalk Chapel.
