Dear friend of Taylor,
We thought you would want to be aware of three upcoming events at the Wahl Centre for Life-Long Kingdom Learning.
This weekend, author Mark Buchanan will join us for our fourth annual onWORD Conference. Mark is the author of Your God is Too Safe; his newest book Your Church is Too Safe is a manifesto for the Church to live more faithfully, generously and dangerously. As Mark says, we need to receive God's power to be formed in his character to accomplish his work for his glory.
Numerous other speakers will be featured at onWORD, making this Friday and Saturday event a thought-provoking, encouraging, challenging and worthwhile event. onWORD is a journey through scripture, a conference focused on experiencing, reading, exploring, and learning God's Word.
(By the way, recording artist Jon Bauer will be leading worship.)
Registration is just $49.99 but group rates are also available. onWORD will take place at Steele Heights Baptist Church in north Edmonton this weekend (September 27-28). For a full list of speakers and topics or to register, click here.
Another upcoming event is LIVING GENEROUSLY, a stewardship event featuring Dr. Scott Rodin. Church leaders give Dr. Rodin high marks for not only his rich insights and the solid theological foundation to his work, but also for his creative and passionate approach to this subject.
Stewardship is one of the most important topics in scripture, yet is often poorly understood and practiced -- this weekend will change that for you, your family and your church.
This event will take place at Terwillegar Community Church, and registration fees are surprisingly affordable thanks to the generous support of a number of cooperating and supporting agencies (including TCC, the NAB Foundation, the ABA and TPB Strategic Counsel. You can read more about this event and register by clicking here. You can also browse his ministry website here, and you can explore his writings by searching for his titles at Amazon.com.
The Wahl Centre is delighted to be working collaboratively with a wide range of agencies and individuals who serve in compassionate ministries in Edmonton to initiate "a local conversation" about God's justice at work in our city.
Rick Tobias, with a 30-year tenure at Yonge Street Mission in Toronto, will deliver three keynote addresses that speak to the issues at the heart of justice ministry. This will be a weekend of renewal, discussion, vision -- a time to gather, and to support and encourage one another. First Baptist Church in downtown Edmonton will be hosting this event, and significant volunteer support is coming from the Urban Bridge Church. Read more about this event by clicking here.

Update on Taylor Seminary
It has been a delight to welcome back returning students and to welcome those who are just beginning their studies with us. Once again, enrollment is strong, and our student body numbers just over 100 individuals.
Many students are part-time, people who continue to work and serve in ministry while working towards an advanced degree. Some are typical academics with full course loads working towards a degree, and others have been out of school for years (decades), and are just taking a single course out of personal interest or to " test the waters."
Did you know that you can take a single course, including online courses or one-week intensives? Did you know that you can "audit" a course for half the regular price (that is, to take it without academic credit)? Did you know that students generally enroll at the beginning of a semester, but that students have the opportunity to begin their studies throughout the year (during our modular/intensive weeks)?
Join the conversation at the Taylor Facebook page! This week and next we are holding a series of contests to win books and CDs; it's easy to win -- join us here, and click LIKE to get started!
Thanks for subscribing! We value your support of the educational ministries of Taylor; please be in touch if there is any way we can be of service.
Your friends at Taylor College and Seminary
