Student and Alumni News

 

Immanuel and NinaImmanuel and Nina's baby girlThe BGST family shares in the joy of Immanuel Moses Kanagala (MTh, 2011) and Nina Pailkar (Dip CS, 2011) as they become parents for the first time. Their precious gift of a baby girl was born on 10 January 2012 in Mumbai. We thank God both mother (and father!) and child are healthy. Please continue to pray for the family as they adjust to a new addition.

 

Upcoming Intensive Courses

Dr Burce WinterRev Dr Bruce Winter was Principal of Queensland Theological College, until his recent retirement. He is Director of the Institute for Early Christianity in the Greco-Roman World at the University of Queensland, Senior Research Fellow at Macquarie University, and Visiting Scholar at the University of Cambridge.

He will be conducting two intensive courses in the months of January and February 2012.

  1. God Goes to the Office: Walking Around God’s World God’s Way
    Day / Time : Monday-Friday, 7.15-10.15pm
    Date : Jan 30, 31, Feb 1, 2, 3
    Venue : Community for Christ Church, 37 Jalan Pemimpin, #03-03A Blk A, Clarus Centre Singapore 577177

    Traditionally some theological discussion has been undertaken on the basis of the two kingdoms:
    God’s kingdom works according to His Word and the kingdoms of this world work according to their own value systems. This course begins by examining the Word of God to see how the commercial world of Israel operated and then how the first Christians operated in that world. The course will then proceed to explore the implications of the film Wall Street and recent Christian discussion on this critical issue.

  2. Secular Culture Versus Culture of the Cross: 1st and 21st Century Challenges

    Date : Feb 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
    Venue : Community for Christ Church, 37 Jalan Pemimpin, #03-03A Blk A, Clarus Centre Singapore 577177

This course looks at the clash in five major spheres of first-century life for Christians. It examines what it would have been like for first-century Christians to be conformed to the world of their day and then confronted by the demands in Romans 12:2, that they were to be transformed by ethical reprogramming according to the will of God.
