Event description
The Greek and Hebrew for Life Alumni Academy will take place on July 30-31, 2021 at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

About this event

Teaching God’s Word is paramount among a pastor’s priorities. However, the demands of ministry are numerous and varied, making it easy for pastors to slip in their comprehension and utilization of the biblical languages. In this forthcoming Alumni Academy, Dr. Rob Plummer and Dr. Adam Howell, along with several other professors, will offer guidance for pastors who are trying to get back on track in their Greek and Hebrew language skills.

Along with the Friday-Saturday Alumni Academy, participants are encouraged to attend Dr. Plummer’s Greek review course or Dr. Howell’s Hebrew review course held on campus at SBTS, July 26-30, 2021 (Monday-Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.) This course will give attendees even more time to review Greek or Hebrew grammar and reading.

If you are interested in participating in this class option, please email admissions@sbts.edu to enroll. As a reminder, if you are not an alumnus of SBTS or Boyce, you will first need to complete a unique review course student application to enroll in this course.

Lodging is not provided and attendees must secure their own arrangements. For information about the hotel located on campus, please visit legacyhotellouisville.com or call 502-736-0600.
