WELCOME! We are now recruiting for the 2017 cohort of about 20 to come and learn science at Gordon. We have scheduled the conference during the week of June 12-16, 2017. Participants arrive on campus Sunday evening and depart mid-day the following Saturday (June 17th), allowing for pastoral Sunday duties to continue with minimal interruption. We offered two very successful (and FREE!) pastor’s retreats in 2014 and again in 2015 on the beautiful campus of Gordon College, in Wenham, MA. We are located near one of the most significant biotechnology and educational centers of the world. If you are interested in learning more about our project, we encourage you to fill out a short survey and tell us a bit about yourself and your interests. Although our funding was for just two offerings of the course, we were able to secure some additional funds to offer the course again, and we want to be able to recruit a class of about 20. Keep in mind this is a FREE course. If you are interested please fill in the survey, which I check periodically, but it would be a good idea to also email me directly to let me know so I don’t miss it. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you fascinated by and in awe of what science is revealing about the world God has created? (Who isn’t?)
Have you ever wanted to learn more about science but not had the time to do so? (Yep!)
Do you feel like your ministry would benefit if you know more about scientific areas like the human genome project, personalized medicine, dark matter, neuroscience and the mind, and other hot topics?
If so, we encourage you to become a part of an international network of pastors committed to increasing their understanding and appreciation of modern science. Check out this brief video that describes the conference and contains interviews of some of the pastors who participated in 2014.
