College hosts Midwest Evangelical Conference

Open to public       Send a link to a friend

[FEB. 27, 2004]  Some of the most noteworthy scholars in the world of evangelical theology will be gathering on the campus of Lincoln Christian College and Seminary March 19-20. For two days, the Lincoln Christian College and Seminary will host the 49th annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society -- Midwest Region, a conference that features scholarly paper presentations, displays by leading book publishers and a unique opportunity for student, faculty, pastors and church leaders to interact with many of Christianity's finest minds.

This meeting is a "first" for the Lincoln campus, and according to LCCS professor Dr. Robert Kurka, "a major step in our school's commitment to be a ‘significant player' in the circles of evangelical theology." Kurka is the chair for this year's conference.

The theme for the conference is "Taking Every Thought Captive to Christ: Theology and the Formation of a Christian World," emphasizing the necessity of bringing every academic discipline -- and indeed, all of life -- under intentional biblical and theological reflection.

Headlining the LCCS venue will be evangelicalism's most recognized theologian, Dr. Millard J. Erickson of Baylor University, who will present two plenary addresses as well as participate in a panel discussion. Other plenary speakers include renowned missiologist Dr. Harold Netland of Trinity International University, Deerfield, and Dr. David Naugle of Dallas Baptist University, whose recent book, "Worldview: The History of the Concept," has been acclaimed as one of the finest works ever on the topic. Lincoln professors Brian Johnson, James Sennett, James Estep and Robert Kurka will be represented among the more than 35 papers presented, and LCCS professor Rich Knopp will treat conference attendees to a 40-minute multimedia presentation of his Lilly Grant-funded program, "Worldview Eyes."

The meeting is open to all interested people at no charge; however, there is a $25 registration fee for those who want to purchase books at discounted prices or attend the Friday evening banquet.

Inquiries may be directed to Dr. Kurka at (217) 732-3168, ext. 2293, or by e-mail to A conference poster and program may be downloaded from the LCCS website at this link: "Upcoming Events -- The 49th Annual Meeting of the Midwest Regional Evangelical Theological Society."
