On October 27 and 28, the Nazarene Seminary of the Americas held a theological conference entitled Called: To Connect, To Mold and To Transform. One hundred and fifty-five participants attended the two-day event. Since the event was held during the month of the 500-year anniversary of the Reformation, the event focused on how the Church can continue to renew and be applicable to the world we find ourselves in today.
The Friday evening opening service was a great blessing to all. The Poas Church of the Nazarene led the worship music and Dr. Jorge Julca preached from Ephesians 1:3-14, reminding the congregation that as Christians our identity is in Jesus Christ and only in Him.
Saturday morning included a time of worship and a devotional focused on connecting with others from Rev. Johnny Calvo. The first session speaker was M. Jose Chacon speaking on the need for Significant Communication with a New Society, and then Dr. Marco Velasco spoke on the need To Be and To Make Fruitful Disciples. After this session, the conference participants shared in round table discussions for twenty minutes, with discussion led by the table leader.
In the afternoon, Rev. Sirlene Bustos led the devotional and then the final session was given by Dr. Harold Segura who spoke on the theology of Luther.
After each session, the participants had the opportunity to ask questions to the presenters to clarify and apply the information to today’s ministry contexts.
The event ended in the evening with the SENDAS graduation ceremony. You can read more about the graduation here.
SENDAS thanks each presenter and participant for being part of this important theological event, and we hope to continue the theological discussion each year in October. Please join us in 2018!
