The State of African Centered Theological Education
SCUPE's Center for African American Theological Studies (CAATS) is celebrating its 10-year anniversary Friday, September 19 & Saturday, September 20, 2014.
Intended for theological educators, church leaders and students, Friday night's forum will feature key African American church leaders and seminary faculty including Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Dr. John Kinney, and Rev. Dr. Yvonne Delk. These leaders will reflect on how teaching methods that center in the African American experience could transform graduate theological education in the United States. We will explore the shape theological education and urban ministry should to take in 2014 and beyond to prepare church leaders to more adequately engage issues in the public sphere such as the events
surrounding Ferguson, MO.
There will be a reception from 6:00 7:00 p.m.
