Campbell University Divinity School is hitting the road, traveling around North Carolina offering a series of ThED Talks that will be on engaging topics related to theological education, presented by our outstanding faculty. These regional events will give the school the opportunity to connect to individuals who are not familiar with us, reconnect with those who are, and celebrate the exciting things going on in our community.
Greenville Area ThED Talks Recap
On Sunday, April 22nd Campbell Divinity held its second regional ThED Talk event. It took place at one of Campbell Divinity’s partner churches, Oakmont Baptist Church in Greenville, NC. The event pulled interest from residents of Rocky Mount, Goldsboro, New Bern, Kinston, and many other eastern North Carolina locations in addition to the Greenville area. Many alumni were in attendance who were able to reconnect with the Campbell Divinity community. There were also a larger number of individuals who were not already connected to the school in attendance. The event gave them the opportunity to learn more about the exciting conversations and studies taking place at the school and inspired them to live more Christ-Centered, Bible-Based, and Ministry-Focused lives.
Three faculty members presented on a variety of subjects that inspired and challenged participants to understand theological education and their faith in new and exciting ways. Dr. Derek Hogan, Assistant Dean for Academic Programs and Assistant Professor of New Testament presented on “Reading the Bible: Some Options.” The second talk titled “Following the Call of Christ: Light for the Path from Christian History” was delivered by Dr. Lydia Hoyle, Associate Professor of Church History and Baptist Heritage. Dr. Caleb Oladipo, Professor and Snellings Chair of Evangelism and Christian Mission presented the third and final talk that focused on “What Christians in the Global South Are Saying About Jesus, Faith, and the Church.” To listen to the talks presented at our Greenville area event, click the video links below.
