“Emerging theologies that impact congregational ministry”

Leader: Theologian John R. Franke

A great opportunity to explore theological trends that impact congregations, as well as enjoy the scenic beauty that many don’t know exists along the Georgia coastline.

Award-winning photographer Bruce Gourley will provide photo tips as he leads the group on tours of tucked-away places where driftwood rests on beaches and migrating birds and other wildlife gather. A ferry ride to Cumberland Island, where horses run wild among sand dunes and historic ruins, will be a uniquely enjoyable and refreshing experience.

Cost and registration information will be available here soon.




A new two-day experience!

Thursday evening will feature presentations by and discussions with historians Bobby Lovett of Nashville, Tenn., and Bruce Gourley of Bozeman, Mont., about Baptist engagement in and responses to the Civil War, as well as the war’s legacy that still impacts American life today.

A Friday tour of Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park (the first and largest) will give insider perspectives on the war a century and a half ago. Other activities will be announced soon as well as registration information.
