Haverim Lecture Series: "How Israel’s Fall Festivals Energize Discipleship" with James Whitman
Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Growing In Grace & Knowledge: How Israel’s Fall Festivals Energize Discipleship is a seminar dedicated to exploring an ancient yet new way of understanding the God of the Bible and ourselves. As the people of God united around his saving purposes we will experience the difference that only his presence can make.
Come study and worship with your friends at JC Studies in Dayton, Ohio. In an unique and memorable way, James Whitman will share how his heart for Jesus-centered discipleship is illustrated in the Biblical Fall Feasts.
In a world that's constantly on the move, how beautiful it is to discover the pattern of Festivals laid out by our LORD in Scripture. These annual appointments with God breathe new life into our view of salvation and discipleship. Every year we approach these set-aside times a changed people, and our Father's faithfulness calls us back to the original, big picture story of Creation and Covenant.
Each stimulating session will have handouts and slides to maximize interest and engagement!

He graduated, with honors, from Northwest University (1989) with degrees in Biblical Literature and Pastoral Ministry. Since that time James has devoted himself to training individuals, families and faith communities in the practical dimensions of discipleship from a Hebraic Perspective. James lives in Dayton, Ohio with his wife Tamóra and their four children, where he serves as President of JC Studies.
