    Seminary 101: An Introduction to Taking Classes at VTS
    Tuesday, September 10, 2019
    6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
    Free admission; registration required

    Whether you’re auditing a class at VTS this fall or just pondering a class in the future, this one-night class with Chrissie Crosby (VTS MA 2014) will introduce “seminary” terminology, expectations, and resources for seminary studies.  

    The “priesthood of all believers” reflects the belief that God’s great conversation with us as God’s people is unending and without borders. In order to hold up our end of the conversation, it is important to take religious literacy and theological understanding seriously. One way to accomplish this goal is by taking part in classes offered to VTS seminarians, to study with them as they prepare for their ministry. As lay students, we may not use the knowledge we gain for the same purposes but we will share with them the particular angle of vision of the subjects studied that is offered in a seminary setting. This "Seminary 101” class provides an introduction to study in the Masters Program classes at VTS.

  • Hybrid Faith Formation Cohort

    Location: Online via Zoom
    Hybrid Faith Formation Cohort (Fall 2019)
    September 17 to November 5
    $150; Register Here

    Wrestling with what it means to share and offer Christian formation in person as well as digitally? Sarah Stonesifer and Stacy Williams-Duncan will be leading a Hybrid Faith Formation cohort in Fall 2019. This cohort will be a guided colleague group, working online and gathering via Zoom to build community, ask questions, and participate in discussions.

    We know that all of our own personal and professional lives are equally busy and full. We want to make sure that this time is made available for you to truly learn and apply what we are talking about.
    Our end goal for the cohort members is that they have a plan and resources to implement a hybrid faith formation opportunity for their own community.

    Some have asked about a time commitment. We’ll be doing every-other-week check-ins via Zoom during the workday at the same time and day each week. A topic will be explored each week during the cohort, and between the reading and Zoom call, it will be about 75-90 minutes of work per week. But, if you want to go "down the rabbit hole" on any topic, we’ll provide more expansive sources for you to dive into. Our Zoom calls together will be time to discuss and share ideas. We’ll also do some digital ministry experiments together so that we can get a feel for some different platforms and formats.

    Gatherings on Zoom will take place on Tuesdays at 2 pm Eastern. Some are content/presentation focused, while others open office hours and student-driven:
    • September 17th: Content
    • September 24th: Content
    • October 1st: Open Office Hours
    • October 8th: Content
    • October 15th: Open Office Hours
    • October 22nd: Content
    • October 29: Open Office Hours
    • November 5th: Content and share-out
    • January 14th, 2020 check-in (optional)
    The registration for the cohort at $150. Please reach out if this cost prevents you from being able to participate with us.
  • Costan Lecture - I Wish They All Could Be Chalcedonian: Understanding the Gift of Patristic Christology

    Location: Sparrow Conference Room
    I Wish They All Could Be Chalcedonian: Understanding the Gift of Patristic Christology
    Registration available online.

    5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
    Sparrow Hall (September 17 & 19); The Deanery (September 18)
    In these lectures Lewis will explore the heart of early Christian teaching about the person of Christ. To get to this heart, however, Lewis will focus on the controversies of the period between AD 500 and 700. These debates are far less well known than they should be, but they are fundamental if we are to understand the legacy of early Christian thought about Christ for today.

    The Lectures

    September 17:  Journey to Constantinople, Or, Justinian, An Unlikely Hero

    September 18:  On Looking Back, Or, How to Define a Tradition

    September 19: On Looking Forward, Or, From the Seventh Century to Today


     
    Lewis Ayres is Professor of Catholic and Historical Theology at Durham University in the UK & Professorial Fellow at the Australian Catholic University in Melbourne, Australia. He previously taught in Ireland and in the US.  He writes on early Christian and modern Catholic theology; his most recent book was co-edited with Medi Ann Volpe, The Oxford Handbook of Catholic Theology.

The annual three-part lecture series was established in 2014, by the generosity of Ms. Margaret H. Costan with the intent of strengthening the educational offerings of Virginia Theological Seminary.

    Location: Online via Zoom
    Hybrid Faith Formation Cohort (Fall 2019)
    September 17 to November 5
    $150; Register Here

    Wrestling with what it means to share and offer Christian formation in person as well as digitally? Sarah Stonesifer and Stacy Williams-Duncan will be leading a Hybrid Faith Formation cohort in Fall 2019. This cohort will be a guided colleague group, working online and gathering via Zoom to build community, ask questions, and participate in discussions.

    We know that all of our own personal and professional lives are equally busy and full. We want to make sure that this time is made available for you to truly learn and apply what we are talking about.
    Our end goal for the cohort members is that they have a plan and resources to implement a hybrid faith formation opportunity for their own community.

    Some have asked about a time commitment. We’ll be doing every-other-week check-ins via Zoom during the workday at the same time and day each week. A topic will be explored each week during the cohort, and between the reading and Zoom call, it will be about 75-90 minutes of work per week. But, if you want to go "down the rabbit hole" on any topic, we’ll provide more expansive sources for you to dive into. Our Zoom calls together will be time to discuss and share ideas. We’ll also do some digital ministry experiments together so that we can get a feel for some different platforms and formats.

    Gatherings on Zoom will take place on Tuesdays at 2 pm Eastern. Some are content/presentation focused, while others open office hours and student-driven:
    • September 17th: Content
    • September 24th: Content
    • October 1st: Open Office Hours
    • October 8th: Content
    • October 15th: Open Office Hours
    • October 22nd: Content
    • October 29: Open Office Hours
    • November 5th: Content and share-out
    • January 14th, 2020 check-in (optional)
    The registration for the cohort at $150. Please reach out if this cost prevents you from being able to participate with us.
