Information, Knowledge and Wisdom – part 1
Eight months in, I’m already seeing benefits
Access to data alone does not make you knowledgeable. Nor is the ability to recall information the same as knowledge. Knowledge takes study and reflection. It is a slow process, gradually accumulated through thought and experience.
Applications for the Crosslands seminary-level course close in 1 month
Eight months into my first year of study at Crosslands, I am already seeing how the knowledge I am gaining is being translated to my pastoral care ministry.
The biggest need in Europe is healthy churches. Healthy churches need training.
Our seminary-level course is designed for assistant pastors, aspiring church planters, apprentices and even those in ministry wanting to 'top-up' their theology.
Crosslands launch - Tim Challies, Blogger and Author
What is the biggest need in Europe today? From the point of view of the gospel, it is without a doubt more gospel-centred, theologically-clear, culturally-engaged, missionally-innovative churches.
Crosslands launch - Matt Chandler, Acts 29 President
Tim Challies (Blogger, Author and Book Reviewer) talks about how the Crosslands seminary-level course is solving the problem of training leaders in their context in the UK, Europe and 10:40 window through gospel partnership between Acts 29 and Oak Hill.
Crosslands launch - Steve Timmis, Acts 29 CEO
This new type of organisation serves those looking for gospel training in the UK, Europe and 10:40 window, whether emerging leaders, missional leaders or simply those wanting to deepen their understanding of theology as they engage on mission for the glory of God.
Crosslands Launch - Dan Strange, Oak Hill Acting Principal
The launch of Crosslands is exciting, timely and strategic. Exciting because we want Christians to be stirred for Christ as a result of theological education. Timely as Crosslands equips for mission those who can’t train at great institutions like Oak Hill for all sorts of reasons. And it’s strategic because it will connect people for gospel collaboration in the UK, Europe and 10:40 window
The Acts 29 Oak Hill Academy formally launches as Crosslands
In our too-often fractured evangelical sub-culture, it’s been a really encouraging and positive experience to be partnering with Steve Timmis, Tim Chester and the rest of the Acts 29 team to create Crosslands. We are very different organisations but share the same vision and values for the kind of gospel training that Crosslands will provide.
There are many good theological institutions in the UK and Europe already; we praise God for the work that they do. However, Crosslands is a new kind of organisation, a Flexicademy™ that offers flexible learning and rigorous training, leaning on the extensive church planting experience of Acts 29 and the exceptional theological training expertise of Oak Hill.
