Church Resources

From Lifelong Learning at Trinity School for Ministry

The Church is in need of well-trained lay people (youth through adults) who can articulate a faithful and compassionate gospel message within the context of everyday life. Lifelong Learning, in partnership with Whitchurch Resources and the Robert Webber Center, has developed materials that will help create a mission shaped Church for our time! 

The Good Shepherd, a Theological Journey of 1,000 Years - Coming Soon!
Beginning with the 23rd Psalm, Dr. Kenneth Bailey shows how different biblical authors play on this Good Shepherd theme, adapting it for their own times and circumstances. From the prophets, to Jesus, to Peter, see what the Lord has to say about his relationship to his people like a shepherd with his flock. Dr. Kenneth Bailey is a New Testament scholar who spent most of his academic career teaching at colleges and universities in the Middle East. He brings a unique cultural perspective to his reading of the Scriptures, sharing his insight from years of living near the places where the Bible was written.
