Event description

Description

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, January 7-11 (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.

Registration for these week-long review courses will open October 1, 2019. If you have not taken an SBTS class before, please email Alice Rodriguez at arodriguez@sbts.edu for more information on submitting a free student application and how to register for these courses.
