Discipleship Conference Credit

This Fall 2020 semester we are offering an additional way to earn 1 Spiritual Life Credit in the Discipleship category! This opportunity is available for students both on and off campus, and can be done with a group of friends or individually.

Through RightNow Media we have access to thousands of bible studies, videos, trainings, and conferences all provided to you for free when you create an account! All of these are available to you all the time, but we have a few select conferences available for you to watch, complete a reflection, and earn 1 Spiritual Life Credit. If this opportunity interests you, please look over the conferences below and email campusministries@jessup.edu with which one you’d like to watch for access to the training link, which will be how you complete the reflection to receive credit. You will need to watch the conferences in full (minimum of 4 hours) and complete each reflection thoughtfully in order to receive credit.

Amplify 2018: Reimagining a Simple Gospel

Look around you. Look around the world. So many needs, so many wounds and pains and divisions. So.much.brokenness. God made flesh, God dwelt among us. That’s what our world needs. An unsaturated, uncomplicated reconciling gospel that proclaims one thing: the healing work of the cross that has crossed two thousand years to get to us.
For some, sharing the gospel is a dim memory. For others, it’s an archaic command. For others, it’s the call of a few. For too many, it’s hard, filled with fear, uncertainty, and a lack of feeling prepared. What all of these views lack is the rock-solid truth that God has called all of us, God will equip us, and God will do the work. When we take our eyes off ourselves, God is lifted high for all to see.
Amplify 2018 will allow us to strip out the complexities of gospel witness and reveal the simplicity of the gospel that overcomes all barriers. Christ crucified. Christ lifted high. Our world made new. What does the simple, stripped gospel message look like to you? And how are you showing & sharing it with a world in desperate need of it?

Speakers include: Miles McPherson, Will Graham, Sarita Gallagher, Phil Vischer, Scott Chapman, Tom Lin, Danielle Strickland, Nigel & Jessie Paul, Ed Stetzer, Krish Kandiah, Laurel Bunker, Lisa Fields, Nick Hall, Paco Amador, Shannon O’Dell, and Steve Carter.

MLK50: Gospel Reflections from the Mountaintop

Racial unity is a gospel issue and all the more urgent 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr.’s death. Join the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and The Gospel Coalition at a special event, “MLK50: Gospel Reflections from the Mountaintop,” which took place April 3-4, 2018 in Memphis, TN. Key speakers included Matt Chandler, Jackie Hill Perry, Eric Mason, Russell Moore, John Piper, Benjamin Watson, and many others.
The 50th anniversary of King’s tragic death marks an opportunity for Christians to reflect on the state of racial unity in the church and the culture. It creates the occasion to reflect on where Christians have been and look ahead to where we must go as we pursue racial unity in the midst of tremendous tension.

Speakers include: John Perkins, Russell Moore, Charlie Dates, J. Lawrence Turner, Jackie Hill Perry, Mika Edmondson, Eric Mason, Ralph West, Matt Chandler, Trip Lee, Christina Edmondson, K.A. Ellis, Don Carson, and John Piper.

Work as Worship Retreat

We might spend a few hours of our week at church or in a small group. This kind of worship is biblical and a vital rhythm in the life of a Christian. But during the other 166 hours of our week, we have just as much potential to worship the God who created us.
The Work as Worship retreat is for men and women in the business world who want to incorporate their Christian faith more fully into every day of their week. Experience the full lineup of speakers as they discuss what it looks like to worship with our work. Uncover opportunities you have waiting for you to carry your faith with you on Monday.

Speakers include: Francis Chan, Megan Alexander, Chris Patton, Jeffrey Wright, Helen Mitchell, Andrew Wexler, Steve Green, Liz Forkin Bohannon, and Jon Acuff.
