Your support ensures that future church leaders can pursue their call to ministry today.
There was a time when the church could assume that the people it was trying to reach already knew the Christian story. Evangelism meant framing the Christian message in a relevant light. Today, many in the church aren't familiar with aspects of the Bible or the Christian story.
On March 13 at 1:30 p.m., Luther Seminary professors Craig Koester and Rolf Jacobson will describe how modern evangelism needs to include the simple act of telling the story. Koester, the Asher O. and Carrie Nasby Chair of New Testament; and Jacobson, associate professor of Old Testament, will lead the annual Aus Memorial Lectures on campus. This year's theme is "Telling the Old, Old Story in a New, New Way."
Established in 1978, the Aus Memorial Lectures focus on evangelism. Lectures are held in memory of George Aus, a prominent evangelist and professor of systematic theology at Luther Seminary from 1939 to 1973.
Lectures are commonly held in conjunction with daily chapel services, which take place at 11 a.m. in the Olson Campus Center. On March 13, Koester will be preaching, with Jacobson leading the service. The lecture will be held at 1:30 p.m., following community lunch. The public is welcome to attend all parts of the day. For more information, call 651-641-3451.
Join us to help people reimagine their lives in light of the characters, events and stories of the Bible.
