Engaging Diversity in the Context of Christian Worldview.

The Intercultural Studies Lecture Series is a free event offered in the fall and spring featuring a guest lecturer who addresses topics relevant to intercultural issues from a biblical, theological, and psychological perspective.  The purpose of this series is to provide a forum where students, faculty and friends of GRTS can engage in an open dialogue about the connection between Christian worldview and issues of diversity.  The guest lecturers combine recent scholarship and personal ministry experience to help people become more informed and aware of a variety of intercultural issues.  Each of these evening events, from 7:00-9:00pm, involves a lecture followed by Q & A, and concludes with a dessert buffet to provide a time of fellowship.
