Pittsburgh Theological Seminary will host the church educators’ certification elective “Reformed Theology” Oct. 22-26, 2012. Sheldon Sorge, pastor to Pittsburgh Presbytery, and Tammy Wiens Sorge, Presbyterian Church (USA) pastor and former denominational Associate for Spiritual Formation, will lead the course.
This 30-hour intensive course is designed to provide Presbyterian Christian educators with knowledge of and an appreciation for the confessional claims that are foundational for the Presbyterian Church (USA), the historical contexts out of which its confessions arise, and the contemporary significance those confessions have for the life of the church today. Related attention will also be paid to Reformed worship and spirituality. The course will consist of lectures, small group exercises, discussions of the readings, and personal research.
Registration fee is $275. On-campus housing is an additional cost. Contact the Office of Continuing Education with questions at 412-924-1345 or ConEd@testsite.pts.edu.
