Leading United Kingdom Old Testament scholar, Dr Chris Wright will be running a one-day seminar in Rivonia, Johannesburg on Saturday
Wright, who is the chief architect of the Cape Town Commitment, the most influential evangelical document since the original Lausanne Covenant in 1974, will teach on preaching the Old Testament.
The seminar is hosted by the South African Theological Seminary (SATS) together with Reaching the Unreached (RTU) mission agency.
As successor to the great John Stott, Wright heads Langham Partnership International. He is the former Principal of All Nations Christian College, and has published many important books. At the Lausanne congress in 2010 his address focusing on humility, integrity and simplicity, was not only deeply insightful but also influential. He has a very deep love and respect for the Word of God, says SATS Projects Director Jenny Mason.
“We invite pastors, church leaders and Christians who want to be exposed to the deep teachings of the Old Testament, not to miss this incredible opportunity to hear one of the world leaders of the Christian faith,” she says.
The seminar is from 8:30 am (registration) to 4pm on June 1 at Ridgeway Ministries Church 61 Wessels Road, Rivonia. The cost of R150 includes two teas, lunch and a contribution to Wright’s expenses.
Langham, publishers of high quality theological books, will have a book table at the event.
