Greg Strand is EFCA executive director of theology and credentialing, and he serves on the Board of Ministerial Standing as well as the Spiritual Heritage Committee. He and his family are members of Northfield (Minnesota) EFC.
We have a new resource to announce: EFCA Theology Podcast.
Brian Farone, Director of Biblical Theology and Credentialing, EFCA West, and I both had thoughts of beginning a podcast. In discussing this we determined it would be a better use of time and resources to do a single podcast, providing another important resource for the EFCA. Although Brian and I work together on the podcast, he provides the primary oversight and administration of it.
For now, we include messages that have already been given in various EFCA conferences. Some of the recent posted podcasts are from our Theology Conference held a couple of weeks ago (you can also access recordings, notes and bibliographies of all the plenary lectures at our EFCA Theology Conference webpage.) In some ways, this will become a repository of many of the excellent messages we have heard in the EFCA over the past many years in our conferences.
We will also provide a reading of Evangelical Convictions . For example, episodes 101 and 108 are readings from the book.
Occasional interviews will also be included. For example, episode 113 is an interview with Peter Cha, Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
In the future we may also address other important matters that relate to doctrine, theology, culture, the church, and numerous other matters.
Here is how this new resource is explained on the website:
The EFCA Theology Podcast encourages pastors and church leaders to stay passionate about the gospel and faithful to the Scriptures. Episodes will help listeners understand, share and live out our most important beliefs.
Each week you can look forward to new episodes from a number of different categories, including:
