FLBCS to Host Lutheran Studies Room at Evangelical Theological Society
For release Wednesday, June 1, 2022
The Free Lutheran Bible College and Seminary will sponsor a series of lectures at the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) this November in Denver, CO. Those presenting will include Dr. Joel Biermann–Professor at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Dr. Mark Mattes–Luther scholar from Grandview University, and Dr. Jordan Cooper–President of the AALC Seminary.
“For the first time this year, a group of Lutherans, including myself, will be presenting papers at the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society,” says Dr. Cooper. “Speaking beyond our tradition has always been a passion/desire of mine, and I am excited to be able to participate.”
Founded in 1949, ETS describes itself as “a group of scholars, teachers, pastors, students, and others dedicated to the oral exchange and written expression of theological thought and research.” Bible College and Seminary faculty that attend the event each year appreciate the organization’s devotion to the inerrancy and inspiration of Scripture and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
President Wade Mobley reflects on the opportunity to host elective sessions at this year’s event, “Lutheran theology has been under-represented in American evangelicalism for decades, and we think that our viewpoint has a lot to offer. Many of today’s cultural and theological controversies could be explored more fruitfully by considering the Lutheran theological perspective.”
Organizers hope to see more presenters from the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC) and the Church of the Lutheran Brethren (CLB) in future years. To learn more about this event visit etsjets.org.
Founded in 1964 by the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations, the Free Lutheran Bible College and Seminary includes a two-year post-secondary program (FLBC) and a four-year Master of Divinity pastoral training program (FLS). The Free Lutheran Bible College and Seminary gained accreditation from the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) in 2018.
