Longtime Liberty Prof Karen Swallow Prior Leaving for Southeastern

The author and English instructor will become the first research professor and one of the only female faculty members at the Southern Baptist college.


One of Liberty University’s best-known professors, Karen Swallow Prior, will be leaving her post to join the faculty of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) next fall.


Prior has taught English at Liberty since 1999. During her tenure, she has watched the school transform as its leadership transitioned from late founder Jerry Falwell to son Jerry Falwell Jr.; its enrollment multiplied through pioneering online education platforms; and ultimately its reputation became further aligned with President Donald Trump, a friend of Falwell Jr.’s.


Her own career has transformed as well. Outside of her classroom at Liberty, Prior has grown into evangelicals’ favorite English professor—espousing the virtues of classic literature in books like Booked and On Reading Well and launching conversations on church and culture through her lively, gracious social media presence.


In addition to speaking out as a “Never Trumper” in national media like the New Yorker and The New York Times, Prior has advocated for and allied with abuse survivors, including those from within her denomination as a Southern Baptist.


At Southeastern, she will serve as full-time research professor of English and Christianity & Culture, the first research professor in the history of the college. She will teach at both the undergraduate and graduate level.


“At Liberty, I have been privileged to disciple Christian young people for 21 years, primarily in my discipline of English,” she said in a statement. “My mission in teaching has always been to have students leaving my classroom loving life, literature and God more than when they came in. I look forward to continuing in that mission as I move into this new ...

[Cfamily]European Students Unite in Prayer for Revival

European Students Unite in Prayer for Revival

The student generation in Europe is hungry for revival.


The student generation in Europe is hungry for revival.


A wave of secularism has swept over Europe and its universities in the last decades, reducing God to a small corner for those who are not “intelligent enough.” But God cannot be contained into a corner. He is big enough to move, even in the hostile academic environment in Europe.


It is with this desire that student organizations such as IFES, Cru, Navigators, and Students for Christ have come together and rallied up with 22 other Christian organizations with a common vision of pursuing a Move of God in the student generation. The effort is called Revive Europe.


“We desperately need another move of God,” said Lindsay Brown, the previous General Secretary of International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES), and International Director of the Lausanne Movement.


Thomas Bucher, the General Secretary of the European Evangelical Alliance, has added that “Europe is in a crisis. In crisis situations, God has often opened up unexpected avenues, often using youth.’’


European students started a 40-week prayer campaign for 40 countries in February 2019. Every Monday, one country is highlighted through a one-minute video produced by students of that nation about how to pray for their country. The videos have had over half million views on social media, and have been used beyond the student environment, by mission agencies such as Greater European Mission and European Christian Missions.


“Sometimes, as an evangelical church, we as Christians feel so small,’’ said students in the Revive Lithuania video, a country whose evangelical population is only 1.4 percent of the whole. That is a common feeling for many in Europe; more ...

[Cfamily]Why Basic Training Is So Important for Church Planters
« Reply #1442 on: October 31, 2019, 01:03:08 PM »
Why Basic Training Is So Important for Church Planters

An assessment of the Hispanic Church Planting Report reveals the necessity of training.


According to the Hispanic Church Planting Report, church planting basic training plays a major role when it comes to the number of new commitments to Jesus Christ in Hispanic congregations during the first four years of existence.


Typically, church plants grow when members from other churches transfer membership or when believers move to the area and are looking for a church.


While there is nothing inherently wrong with those methods of church growth, the goal of church planting is to expand the Kingdom of God through new believers who will also present the gospel to those who do not have a relationship with Christ.


Planters who received basic training in church planting prior to launching a new congregation saw more new commitments to Jesus than those who did not. Clearly, we have a case for investing time in church planters before they start working on the field.


One can argue that a church planter’s training should continue even after they have launched the church. From the survey, we see that regardless of the type and duration of the instruction, basic training positively impacts the success rate of church planters and the expansion of the kingdom, equipping planters to better understand essential factors in the church planting process.


This knowledge allows new churches to start healthier and be more evangelistic.


Any kind of training that church planters receive needs to establish the biblical foundations for the mission and the Christian character of the planter. Besides those key elements, basic training should address four main factors: calling, motivation, team development and leadership, and community exegesis and engagement.


First, when planters arrive to the basic training meeting, they have usually gone through ...

[Cfamily]Evangelism Isn’t About Results
« Reply #1443 on: November 01, 2019, 01:40:02 PM »
Evangelism Isn’t About Results

The Parable of the Sower frees us from our desire for resolution.


How can we evangelize with integrity? As my husband and I lead our church together, this is a question we wrestle with a lot. Namely, in our enthusiasm to see people come to know Christ, how do we resist the temptation of results-driven ministry? How can we communicate the urgency of the gospel without manipulating others’ emotions or fears? How can we present the gospel in a way that is inviting without truncating the message to make it more palatable?


As we have processed these questions and temptations regarding evangelism, we have found ourselves both chastened and encouraged by the Parable of the Sower (Matt. 13). In this famous story, Jesus uses an analogy that would have been familiar to his Palestinian audience. According to Bible scholar William Barclay, farmers at the time would have sown their seed in one of two ways: either casting out the seed by hand or strapping a bag of seed to the back of a donkey, tearing a hole in the sack, and letting the seed spill out as the animal crossed the field.


In both scenarios, the seed would have been vulnerable to variables such as wind or rocky terrain, but because of these two different practices, the identity of the “sower” in this parable remains unclear. Perhaps we are the human sower, or perhaps we are the farmer’s donkey, but it is “God who gives the growth” (1 Cor. 3:7, ESV). In this way, the parable is symbolic of three “actors” who are present in the sharing of the gospel—you, the hearers, and God—and until we understand these roles properly, the work of evangelism will be much harder and more burdensome than God ever intended.


Your Role

In Matthew 13, the sower goes out to sow (v. 3), and he sows into all sorts ...

Kirk Franklin Boycotts Dove Awards for Cutting His Prayers for Black Victims

This year’s broadcast wasn’t the first time TBN had edited the gospel artist’s acceptance speeches.


Prominent gospel musician Kirk Franklin says he will boycott the Christian music Dove Awards, citing frustrations with the Gospel Music Association (GMA) and Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) for editing his past acceptance speeches to remove mentions of race and police shootings.


Franklin made the announcement on Monday in a pair of videos posted to Twitter. Speaking directly into the camera, he explained that after winning a Dove Award—which is affiliated with the GMA—in 2016, he called for racial healing during his acceptance speech, noting the shooting of both police officers and black men in general.


“When we don’t say something, we’re saying something,” Franklin said during the speech, after which he received a standing ovation and led the assembly in prayer.


In his Twitter videos, Franklin said that when the speech later aired on TBN, that section of his speech was edited out of the broadcast.


“I made my disappointment and frustration known to the Dove Awards committee and to the Trinity Broadcasting Network,” he said. “I never heard from TBN, and the Dove Awards committee promised to rectify the mistake so that it wouldn’t happen again.”


Franklin won another Dove award in 2019, when he again made mention of police shootings during his acceptance speech—this time noting the death of 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson, who was shot by a white police officer in her own home in October, according to published reports.


During the awards ceremony held October 15—which marked the 50th anniversary of the Christian music awards—Franklin asked those in the audience and those watching to pray for both Jefferson’s family and the family of the police ...

[Cfamily]One-on-One with Daniel Treier on ‘Introducing Evangelical Theology’
« Reply #1445 on: November 03, 2019, 01:10:27 PM »
One-on-One with Daniel Treier on ‘Introducing Evangelical Theology’

“I have tried to reconnect evangelicals with a lost inheritance as well as introduce them to contemporary resources.”


Ed: Why do we need an evangelical theology?


Daniel: Faith seeks understanding. People who embrace the gospel want to know the glorious God who has saved them, and to follow Jesus as the Holy Spirit empowers them. Evangelical Protestants distinctively root such theological understanding in Scripture as God’s Word. That means trying to understand the unified teaching of the Bible in connection with the church’s witness past and present.



At our worst, we fall into individualistic faith that lacks coherent or churchly understanding—either seeking surface unity without biblical understanding, or else championing secondary truths without Christian unity. At best, though, an evangelical theology helps us to love the God of grace and to labor with fellow believers, despite some of our differences, in living out the gospel.


Ed: I’m in if you see theology as key to the future of evangelicalism. Can it help get us out of the mess we are in?


Daniel: We have to be sober about theology’s possibilities and pitfalls. There are scandals not only of the evangelical mind but also of the evangelical conscience and even of the evangelical mission. So we must not champion theology in a way that simply puffs us up with knowledge (1 Cor. 8:1).



The same passage in 1 Corinthians, though, suggests that proper theological understanding can foster Christian love. Hence, theology can help evangelicals with our current mess by calling us out of political triumphalism and tribalism. Theology should refocus us on the overarching reality of the biblical gospel. The gospel has implications for all of life insofar as it calls us, in your words, to make much of Jesus.

A Rocha Co-Founder, CEO Killed in Crash in South Africa

Miranda Harris and Chris Naylor helped lead the organization’s groundbreaking global efforts to bring together Christian convictions and environmental concerns.


The global creation care community is grieving the loss of some of its most prominent evangelical advocates after the top leaders of A Rocha International—cofounders Peter and Miranda Harris and CEO Chris Naylor and his wife Susanna—suffered a fatal car crash on Monday.


Miranda Harris and the Naylors were killed when their car flipped over a bridge into a river in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, according to news reports. Peter Harris and the driver remain in stable condition. The team was visiting South Africa in connection with A Rocha and in hopes of future ministry opportunities there.


“We know that this comes as a profound shock to everyone in the A Rocha Family and others all around the world,” the UK-based Christian conservation organization stated.


The Harrises founded A Rocha over 35 years ago and have been credited with spreading the creation care movement among Christians around the globe. Chris Naylor joined in 1997, overseeing their conservation work in Lebanon, and has been executive director since 2010.


“Peter and Miranda are pioneers in what is now a global creation care movement, and Chris has led A Rocha brilliantly for many years. It would not be possible to overstate the significance of their contribution both personally and professionally,” said Edward R. Brown, Lausanne Catalyst for Creation Care and director of the ministry Care of Creation. “Though we rejoice in the hope of the resurrection, this is still an unspeakable tragedy for the entire global creation care community.”


Dave Bookless, A Rocha’s director of theology, said the accident “leaves a huge and irreplaceable hole in our lives and our organization.” He described Peter and Miranda ...
