Seminars for Christian Leaders

Places like PTC often have visiting scholars doing lectures and seminars for students, faculty, theology graduates and a few others who are interested. It is exciting to be running something quite different. Dr. Scott Rae a leading Christian ethicist is visiting PTC in July, and we are hosting two events for Christians leaders in health and business. These are for "lay" leaders (though of course all God's people are part of the "layity" since the word just means "people" and ordination does not mean that you graduate from God's people to a new class of being!) Ministers and theology students are not invited to these seminars (well, they can come if they wish, but we hope the rooms will be packed both times with people who work on the coal face).

On Tuesday, 27th of July at 7:30-9:30pm at the PTC Scott Rae will hold a seminar for Christian health professionals on "Dealing with Euthanasia". The next morning, Wednesday 28th of July, there is a breakfast for Christians who work in business, the corporate world and government at the Burwood RSL across the road from PTC. The evening seminar costs $30 (student discount $15) and the breakfast is $35.

Invitations with more details are available in the events section of the PTC website.
