Over the past few years, several of our staff, board members, students, UNC faculty and volunteers have travelled to Vancouver, British Columbia during the summers to participate in Regent College’s much acclaimed summer school program, taking courses in Scripture, theology and Christian ethics. These week-long Regent courses have shaped the teaching caliber of our staff, the vocational discernment of our students and the faith-work integration of board members and friends.
This inspired us to explore the possibility of hosting Regent faculty members to teach week-long courses in Chapel Hill during the summers so that more students, faculty, alumni, and community members could have access to this opportunity. After several conversations with Regent’s President Jeff Greenman, we’ve discovered that Regent is not only open to this idea, but is highly enthusiastic about it.
We are offering a course this summer, hosting Dr. George Guthrie the week of Monday, July 29 – Friday, August 2 to teach on the book of Hebrews. Dr. Guthrie is a respected New Testament scholar, a gifted teacher, an author of several books and commentaries and has served as a Consultant/Reviewer of the book of Hebrews for the English Standard Version translation of the Bible. He comes highly recommended by friends as a lecturer and as someone who we will enjoy spending time with.
The course will run from 9am - 12pm each morning, Monday, July 29 - Friday, August 2. There will likely be opportunities for participants to gather for optional evening meals and lectures. There are two options for participation:
Audit the course — Participants would not be asked to write papers. Auditors will pay $50 to cover course costs.
Take the course for credit — Credit students must complete all assignments and will be graded. These credits can go toward a diploma or degree. Each credit hour corresponds to approximately 45 hours of work in the form of class lectures, readings, and assignments. Participants will pay $395 to receive credit.
There will be optional lunches and fun afternoon activities, as well as an evening lecture. Details on those those will be announced later this summer.
For now, you can REGISTER HERE!
We are thrilled to have this opportunity for Christian education for our community. We’re also grateful for Chapel Hill Bible Church, Holy Trinity Anglican Church of Chapel Hill, and InterVarsity Grad + Faculty Ministries and their enthusiasm to partner with us on this new venture.
This course is open to all, so please share the information with anyone who may be interested!
