Internationally Speaking

2015-10-07 12.49.39Early October was an amazing week.

  • Two colleagues in practical theology visited from South Africa (Potchefstroom, left and middle), to get acquainted and see how we could strengthen each others teaching and research.
  • A guest professor from the US (Grand Rapids, 2nd from the right) taught a week long Master course on the educational mission of the church
  • A new guest professor from the Netherlands (far right) taught a module in pastoral care

As chairman of the department, I got to meet with all of them, which made for an inspiring and very challenging week.

ETF is a very international place, with students and professors from many countries, serving together to equip pastors, missionaries and teachers to serve Christ.

Please keep praying as we develop these international networks. The strength of these relationships has a big impact on the quality and strength of the ETF as a theological training institution.
