CPL WEBINAR: IMAGES OF HOLINESS IN SCRIPTURE

MAY 17, 2016 | 11:00am (Central)

PASTOR JIM FITZGERALD has served as Senior Pastor at Trinity Church of the Nazarene in Duncanville, TX, since June 2001. He is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University, received his Masters of Divinity from Nazarene Theological Seminary, and his Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University, in the areas of Homiletics and American Church History. He was ordained in 1991 while serving on the Tennessee District. He has also served in ministry in Missouri and Oklahoma.

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION: Why is it that we can come up with images of sin and brokenness more readily in our preaching than images of grace and salvation? This webinar will look at the imagery we find in Scripture that helps us speak vibrantly and joyfully of holiness – what God’s grace accomplishes in our lives..

CREATIVITY, CONFIDENCE, & COMPANIONING: VITAL DEVELOPMENT IN TIMES OF CHANGE (An MNU PALCON Pre-Conference for Women Clergy)

JUNE 20, 2016 |  2:00pm - 5:00pm
Campus of MidAmerica Nazarene University (Pre-Conference for MNU PALCON) 

This conference seeks to aid women clergy in finding their footing and voice in ministry and in life. Veteran pastors and church leaders, Julie Cheney, Rebecca Lum and Carla Sunberg will share their own ministry journeys including the challenges they’ve encountered, as well as the support and encouragement they’ve received. Opportunities for dialogue and conversation with other colleagues will enrich the content offered by our featured speakers.  

JULIE CHENEY is Associate Pastor at the Porterville Church of the Nazarene, nearing nineteen years as a member of their pastoral team. She brings her expertise in leadership and organizational strategy to the church as well as her desire to support people in being transformed by Jesus Christ. Pastor Julie earned her BA at Fresno Pacific University, and her Master’s degree from Trevecca Nazarene University. She holds several positions in the denomination, including Chairperson of the District SDMI, Southwest Representative for the USA/Canada Women Clergy Council, member of the District Board of Ministerial Preparation, and instructor for ministerial preparation courses. She also influences her local community as the instructor for Leadership Porterville.

REBECCA LUM is the Lead Pastor at Plattsburgh Church of the Nazarene in upstate New York. She and her husband of almost 39 years, pastored together until he passed away from cancer in March of 2015. Raised in a pastor’s home, she is no stranger to the church and has observed the spiritual victories and struggles of many. Majoring in music at Bible College provided preparation for her early years of ministry where she was Worship Pastor as well as Children’s Director. In May of 2010 she was ordained as an Elder in the Church of the Nazarene. The many hats of ministry she has worn include: Ladies Ministry Director, Worship Pastor, Pastor of Small Groups, District Family Life Coordinator and serving on the District Ministry Board.

CARLA SUNBERG is the tenth president of NTS.  Sunberg was ordained as a Nazarene elder during the 13 years that she and her husband Chuck served as missionaries in the former Soviet Union, where she served as director of compassionate ministries as well as director of theological education. In 2005, the Sunbergs returned to the U. S. and pastored at Grace Point Church of the Nazarene in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where Carla served as pastor of evangelism and discipleship. In 2011, she and Chuck accepted a call to serve as co-district superintendents for East Ohio. Carla has a Ph.D in historical theology from the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom, a Master of Arts from NTS and a Bachelors of Science from MidAmerica Nazarene University. In 2012, Olivet Nazarene University awarded her an honorary Doctor of Divinity.
