Rev. Eric Redmond to Speak at Global Gospel Advancement Week
Rev. Eric C. Redmond will speak at Covenant for this year’s Global Gospel Advancement Week, November 5-9, 2012.
Rev. Redmond is executive pastoral assistant and Bible professor in residence at New Canaan Baptist Church in Washington, DC. He is the author of Where Are All the Brothers?: Straight Answers to Men’s Questions About the Church, a regular contributor to christianity.com, and has published many essays and book reviews, some of which one can find at his blog, A Man from Issachar.
"The series title for the week is ‘the Advancing Gospel and Cultural Conflicts,’” says Marianna Codington ’13, president of Covenant’s Mu Kappa Club. “I hope that students are attentive and open to learning more about this topic of cultural conflict as it is very important for interacting with people from other cultures and being an effective witness of the gospel. Some form of conflict is likely to arise in cross-cultural interactions, and so it's valuable to learn skills of how to handle it."
"We’re delighted that students will have several days to sit under the teaching of Rev. Eric Redmond, and to have multiple opportunities to interact with him,” says Christiana Fitzpatrick, special programs and mentoring coordinator. “Pastor Redmond has served as a professor and a pastor, and enjoys ministering to college students."
