AGTS News: Off-Road Spiritual Experiences

Opening up a new way of understanding spiritual formation, Dr. Earl Creps, director of AGTS doctoral studies, led participants on an “off-road” journey through the content of his new book, Off-Road Disciplines: The Spiritual Adventures of Missional Leaders, in a special six hour seminar on October 27, 2006, in the AGTS chapel. A consummate sherpa in missional leadership matters, Dr. Creps guided the assembled tourists along less traveled paths to discover that their footsteps are always preceded by God’s. Two formative elements emerged; sacred accidents, those God-ordered encounters that shape our perspectives in dynamic ways, and reverse mentoring, wherein expertise for navigating contemporary ministry challenges rests in the heads, hearts and hands of young people.

The seminar, hosted by the AGTS offices of Institutional/Alumni Relations and Continuing Education, drew more than 150 students and church leaders from Missouri and surrounding states. Commenting on how much he enjoyed the event, and echoing numerous other voices, Dr. David Bundrick (M.Div. 1981), dean of students at Evangel University in Springfield, called it “the best one-day seminar I’ve ever attended!”

A video recording of the seminar may be purchased by contacting the Office of Continuing Education (800) 467-2487, ext. 1044.
