One of the distinctives of Heritage Seminary is our emphasis on training up biblical preachers to serve local churches. We are convinced that healthy churches need pastors who feed people well from God’s Word.
As part of this commitment to training faithful, fruitful preachers, we host the Heritage Preacher Lectures each fall. On Thursday, we welcomed Dr. Daniel Block as this year’s guest presenter. Dr. Block is an excellent Old Testament scholar and also an engaging, God-honouring preacher. (He’s also a Canadian from Saskatchewan). Dr. Block’s sessions on “Preaching the Gospel According to Moses” were designed to help preachers present the gospel message while preaching from the book of Deuteronomy!
In addition to thanking the Lord for His goodness to the school, here are several requests I’d ask you to pray about this week.
- This weekend, Linda is teaching a course on Women Who Impact the World: Local, National and Global Evangelism.” Please pray for her as she encourages students to be personally engaged in bringing the good news of Christ to those who need to receive His great salvation.
- On Monday through Thursday (Oct. 16-19), Heritage Seminary will have a visit from an accreditation evaluation team. This is a crucial part of our accreditation process with ATS (The Association of Theological Schools). We’ve been preparing for this visit for over a year and now are praying it will go well. Please join us in asking the Lord for a favourable report.
Thank you for assisting us through your prayers!
