On Thursday, April 23, 2009, at Park Community Church in Chicago, IL, the Carl F. H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School will host an evening of free lectures and discussion with Dr. John Piper of Bethlehem Baptist Church and Dr. D. A. Carson of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. The event will begin at 7:00pm and conclude around 10:00pm. Titled “The Pastor as Scholar, and the Scholar as Pastor: Reflections on Life and Ministry with John Piper and D.A. Carson”, the evening will feature hour-long lectures by Drs. Piper and Carson that offer reflection of a theological and personal nature on the work of the pastor and the scholar, respectively.

Please visit the new website devoted to this event to learn much more about this event.

The Center is excited about this evening and the connection with a city church it affords.  We trust that the talks by Drs. Piper and Carson will be personally helpful for a wide variety of people and that they will inspire many future ministers to consider the model of the pastor-theologian as an excellent paradigm for their ministries.  Please note that the evening is in its entirety free and open to the public.
