Distinguished Faculty Headline Summer Missional Institute


Eastern Mennonite Seminary (EMS) Lancaster is offering three courses in its Summer Institute for Missional Questions, April-June 2013. The teachers, Myron S. Augsburger, Conrad L. Kanagy and Mark and Mary Thiessen Nation, are widely known for their work in scholarly and church circles.

“The Summer Institute for Missional Questions fits our goal of bringing flexible high-quality ministry education close to congregations,” said Mark R. Wenger, director of EMS Lancaster.  “These instructors bring rich global and local perspectives to the landscape of contemporary Christian mission.”

The 2013 summer institute kicks-off early with a course in April – May:

  • “Romans: A Letter to the Church,” taught by Myron S. Augsburger. The class meets weekly on Friday evenings, beginning April 5, concluding May 18. It includes two Saturday sessions.

Two courses are slated for May – June:

  • “Encountering Anabaptism in the Global South,” taught by Conrad L. Kanagy. This is a hybrid course, combining online components and a weekend in the classroom, May 31-June 1.
  • “Human Sexuality in Theological Perspective,” taught by Mark and Mary Thiessen Nation. This course meets on three weekends, May 10-11, May 24-25 and June 7-8.

Each of these courses is available for graduate academic credit or for audit. The final weekend of the “Human Sexuality” course will focus on theology and homosexuality.  There will be separate non-credit registration for this weekend event.
