Hebron's Discipleship Team invites you to join us for a Faith and Life Seminar, The Fire Still Burns, on May 14 & 15th. The seminar will feature Pastor Josh Brown teaching on the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit. RSVP by May 10th here. (Seating is limited.)
Our Guest Speaker for
the Faith and Life Seminar:
Josh Brown is currently the pastor of
Bellefield Presbyterian Church in Oakland, having previously led or served
churches in Washington (PA), Boston, and State College. He grew up at Hebron
and is a graduate of Penn Hills High School, Penn State University, and
Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Josh is a regular speaker with
undergraduate and graduate student groups, has led workshops for the CCO's
Jubilee Conference and the EPC's General Assembly, and has preached and taught
internationally. He has served as the Moderator for the Presbytery of the Alleghenies
and is currently the chair of the Leadership Team and member of the Ministerial
Committee for that body. A mountain biking and reading enthusiast, Josh lives
with his wife, Bethany, and his sons, Malcolm and Jameson, in Point Breeze
The Topics for the Four Seminars are:
1. "Of Whom Do We Speak?" An introduction into Trinitarian theology exploring the
personhood and deity of the Holy Spirit, how the Church has articulated these
beliefs, and also common misunderstandings.
2. "The Spirit and the Scriptures" Beginning with the relationship between the Holy Spirit
and the Bible, we will consider the ways the Scriptures speak about the Spirit
and trace the lines of continuity/development from Creation to New Creation.
3. "The Spirit in the Life of a
Believer" After distinguishing
between common grace and special grace, we will see what role the Spirit plays
in bringing us to saving faith, uniting us to Jesus Christ, conforming us to
his image, and sealing us for the day of redemption.
4. "The Fruit and Gifts of the
Spirit" The differences between the fruit and gifts
of the Spirit will be considered (along with the question of miraculous gifts),
before considering how those things shape our service and vocation both in the
Church and in the world.
