Information, Knowledge and Wisdom – part 2

We are a continent of news junkies. We want the latest information all the time. We dismiss that which is old in favour of the latest. ‘Have you heard the latest?’ we cry. Resist the need to have the latest facts immediately after they unfold. Little of today’s news will prove significant in months to come. Opt instead for considered reflection.

Information, Knowledge and Wisdom – part 1

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.

Crosslands launch - Matt Chandler, Acts 29 President

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 - Steve Timmis, Acts 29 CEO

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

Crosslands Launch - Dan Strange, Oak Hill Acting Principal

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.

The Acts 29 Oak Hill Academy formally launches as Crosslands

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.
