Rev. Eric Redmond to Speak at Global Gospel Advancement Week

Rev. Eric C. Redmond will speak at Covenant for this year’s Global Gospel Advancement Week, November 5-9, 2012.


Rev. Redmond is executive pastoral assistant and Bible professor in residence at New Canaan Baptist Church in Washington, DC. He is the author of Where Are All the Brothers?: Straight Answers to Men’s Questions About the Church, a regular contributor to, and has published many essays and book reviews, some of which one can find at his blog, A Man from Issachar.


"The series title for the week is ‘the Advancing Gospel and Cultural Conflicts,’” says Marianna Codington ’13, president of Covenant’s Mu Kappa Club. “I hope that students are attentive and open to learning more about this topic of cultural conflict as it is very important for interacting with people from other cultures and being an effective witness of the gospel. Some form of conflict is likely to arise in cross-cultural interactions, and so it's valuable to learn skills of how to handle it." 


"We’re delighted that students will have several days to sit under the teaching of Rev. Eric Redmond, and to have multiple opportunities to interact with him,” says Christiana Fitzpatrick, special programs and mentoring coordinator. “Pastor Redmond has served as a professor and a pastor, and enjoys ministering to college students."

"Missions Methods and Problems. It was the first time I had ever taken a class on missionary life. It really taught me a lot about missions and how it’s not this fairytale adventure that people expect it to be. People expect missionaries to be perfect people with perfect adventurous lives, but sometimes you’re just a regular fallen person doing the average daily activities, and that’s okay."

"Doctrine I with Dr. Kapic. More distinctly than anything or anyone else at Covenant, Kapic has helped me understand what it means to intentionally pursue faithful living in every area of my life. This began in Doctrine I, but has also continued in his other classes like Doctrine II, Christology, and Christian Spirituality. One of the first concepts we wrestled with in Doctrine I discussed the dynamics of how not only does our theology inform our lives as acts of worship, but simultaneously our lives inform our theology. You’ll have to take a class with him to really begin to unpack what that means, but Kapic has really helped me grasp the significance of this idea and how to live in response to it."
