Today Crosslands Training (of which I’m a faculty member) launches a Master of Arts in Christian Ministry which you can study while involved in your ministry. We’re able to offer this through a partnership with Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and the BibleMesh Institute. The course can be taken by anyone who has a bachelors degree in any discipline and who is actively involve in church ministry or church planting. An unaccredited version of the course is also available.
Here’s a study guide to accompany my Lent book, The Glory of the Cross, which the good folk at The Good Book Company have produced. It’s designed to be used by a home group or by people reading the book with prayer partners or in one-to-one discipleship relationships. The vision is for churches to be able to use The Glory of the Cross so that they arrive at Easter with a fresh appreciation of the cross and resurrection.
We’ve also produced a series of short weekly videos to accompany the book. The first will be posted here on Ash Wednesday (14 February) and the rest will be posted each Sunday during Lent and Easter.
Each week during Lent I’m going to post a short video introducing the relevant chapter or ‘week’ of my book The Glory of the Cross. The Glory of the Cross has a short reading for each day during Lent plus the week leading up to Easter Sunday. Each of week of reading is based on a different passage of John’s Gospel. So I’m going to introduce each of those passages by highlighting one or two things that particularly struck me as I was writing the book.
The Good Book Company are also preparing some discussion questions that could be used in one-to-ones or small groups. So why not find a friend to read it with or read it in your home group?
Here’s an article I wrote on the rhythms of Puritan spirituality for The Good Book Company blog.
