2017 Hein-Fry Book of Faith Challenge
Friday, April 21, 2017 | 8:30 am to 4:00 pm | LTSP Brossman Center
The Hein-Fry Book of Faith Challenge (HFBFC), was launched in 2015 to enliven the biblical engagement of the whole church by encouraging the development of new examples of faithful, innovative, and effective ways of teaching and learning Scripture.
The 2017 HFBFC has invited seminary students to explore new ways of engaging Scripture in a congregational or ministry setting. This year, we have been particularly interested in projects that engage our reformation heritage and its influence on our reading of Scripture. Four students share their projects and learnings in this day-long event. A panel of practitioners, led by keynote speaker the Rev. Dr. Timothy Wengert, will respond to each presentation.
You are invited to join the conversation as we consider Scripture engagement together.
The day is free and open to the public. Lunch provided. The event is free but you need to register on the form below.
