Center for Christian Leadership Program to Feature Dr. George Hunter on 'The Congregation's Mission to Unchurched People' March 19 at Centenary

SHREVEPORT, LA — Dr. George Hunter, Distinguished Professor of Evangelization at Asbury Theological Seminary, will present a day-long program on "The Congregation's Mission to Unchurched People" at Centenary College.

The Christian Leadership Center program will be held from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. March 19 in the Kilpatrick Auditorium of the Smith Building.

The description of the program states: "More and more people in our communities have no Christian memory, little or no knowledge of Christianity's gospel, and no [idea of the Significant Life that God has in mind for them. In an age when revivals, camp meetings, and crusades no longer gather harvests, what approaches to 'evangelism' are available today that 'fit' our people and our times? George Hunter, whose writing, teaching, consulting, advocacy and ministry are recognized nationally and globally, brings together the 'synergism' of his lifetime of research and the experiences of the church's people to answer this question and many others."

Cost for the program is $75 for those who register by March 5, $80 for those who register between March 6-18, and $85 at the door. Registration includes lunch. Continuing Education credit is available.

The registration form is available at http://www.centenary.edu/clc/theological/continuing/upcoming.
