While the seminars for 2015 are still to be determined, check out the ones we had lined up last year:

“Sex & Relationships” — Eric Gravelle (NYC Metro)

Learn about God’s powerful design for sex and how it compares to our culture’s view.  During the session, we will talk about singleness, dating, marriage & sex–what the Bible says and filling in the blanks where it doesn’t specify.  There will also be adequate time for open Q&A.

“The Bible for Dummies… and Smaahht Kids” — Jarrod Lynn (Brown)
Sure, it’s the most sold book of all time (by a landslide) and it’s important, but how can we better understand & approach the Bible?  It’s like other books yet it’s also not. . .  so we’ll look at what you need to know to get into this “primary source” of Christian faith & practice for yourself.
“My Top 5 Money Tips” — Mark Randall (Rochester area)
After 20 yrs on a modest missionary salary, Mark became a millionaire.  He’s had many ups-n-downs along the way.  He’ll share his experiences with you & leave plenty of time for Q&A about $, student loans, investments & God’s perspective on these topics.
“Navigating the Party Scene” — Craig Luekens (Yale)
It’s Saturday night and I’ve got options.  I also have some convictions.  Then I hear plenty of other people’s opinions.  How can I make my way through this maze of personal preference & peer pressure with a measure of wisdom & a touch of realism?
“TGIM: Thank God It’s Monday–Thinking Biblically About Work” — David ‘Busch’man (Princeton)
Does God care about my job?  What does the Bible teach about work?  How should my Christian faith affect it?  We’ll examine these “real-world” realities with a view to a wide range of careers to better integrate the claims of faith with the demands of the workplace.
