Church History for the Contemporary Church II: 

William Faulkner famously observed that, “The past is never dead. It's not even past."  Indeed, the church continues to engage, manifest and 

struggle with the questions and challenges of every generation:  what does it mean and look like to follow Jesus?


In this second semester of “Church History for the Contemporary Church,” students will pick up the church’s story with the Reformation and follow it up to the present.  Developed around weekly readings, facilitated online discussions in our Zoom classroom, partnered learning and independent inquiry, the course intends to equip students with knowledge, understanding and insight from the past in order to more seriously engage the church of today.

Instructor: Dr. Tim Diebel

Dates: Jan. 11-Mar. 22, Monday evenings at 7 p.m.

Where: Online
