How should Christians use social media? Part 1

How should Christians use social media? Part 1

Some believe Christians should stay off social media entirely. Others see it as a very useful tool for communicating truth, especially the gospel.

In this episode, Tim Hange leads the Calvary Conversations hosts in Part 1 of a conversation about Christians and social media. Join us as we explore the good, the bad and the ugly of social media. If we’re going to use it, how should we do that? Why does it matter who we’re interacting with? What are some best practices for communicating well?

Shaun LePage: Are you prepared for the challenges of ministry?

Shaun LePage: Are you prepared for the challenges of ministry?

Are you “prepared” for ministry? Calvary University’s mission is to “prepare Christians to live and serve in the church and the world according to the biblical worldview.” Shaun LePage, Chairman of the Ministry Studies Department at CU, explains in this conversation with Dr. Joshua Paxton, that the Ministry Studies Department is at the heart of Calvary’s mission.

Preparation for ministry requires more than knowledge of the Bible and theology. It also requires strong character and ministry skills. And CU’s Ministry Studies Department is also focused on equipping every student with a thorough knowledge of biblical principles for ministry so they will be prepared to serve in any culture at any time.

Dr. Joshua Paxton: Why you should care about Intercultural Eduction

Dr. Joshua Paxton: Why you should care about Intercultural Eduction

Intercultural Education is more necessary than ever before. According to Dr. Joshua Paxton, the need for Christians to understand how to communicate and relate with people of other cultures is only going to increase.

Paxton, Director of the Calvary University Burnham Center for Global Engagement and Associate Professor of Intercultural Studies, recently completed a Doctor of Education (EdD) in Intercultural Education. He was invited to join Calvary’s Shaun LePage for a conversation to clarify what exactly is Intercultural Education, why relating to and teaching cross-culturally is different from teaching someone of the same culture and some of the things a person needs to know in order to communicate and teach cross-culturally.

But this is not just for Christians in higher education. The “average” Christian or local church leader should also care about and give our attention to our own Intercultural Education because of the cross-cultural times in which we live.
