JDS Education Symposium

Symposium On The Holy Spirit & Theological Education

The “Symposium on the Holy Spirit and Theological Education” will be held October 24-25, 2019 at the Potter’s House of Dallas in The PLACE. The symposium invites a conversation on what it means to love the Lord with the mind. Jakes Divinity School seeks to form leaders who bring Christian spirituality to bear on theological thinking for everyday leadership within the church and society.

The “Symposium on the Holy Spirit and Theological Education” is an annual academic forum that invites a general Christian audience, pastors, ministers, and theological students from around the world, scholars, and JDS students to participate in conversations that promise to be intellectually stimulating and theologically challenging. At the same time, it will inform Christian leadership and practice.
