Sneak Preview: The Gordon Lewis Center for Christian Thought

Denver Seminary is currently developing the new Gordon Lewis Center for Christian Thought and Culture, led by Dr. Douglas Groothuis.

In light of Denver Seminary’s calling to teach in order “to engage the needs of the world with the redemptive power of the gospel and the life-changing truth of Scripture,” the Lewis Center will serve as a vehicle for this mission. The Center will focus on serving the greater-Denver community by using the disciplines of theology, philosophy, and apologetics to explore the question of what it means to be a Christian in our world. Driven by the Mission of God, the Center will serve as both an outreach to those who do not believe as well as to Christians in need of bolstering their faith. This means that we will seek to engage our community in ways that emphasize the objectively true and subjectively transformational nature of Christianity. 

We will kick off the Lewis Center with two lectures open to the public in September.  These will be held in room 119 of Denver Seminary's classroom building. The first lecture will be on Monday night, September 23rd, at 7pm, when Doug Groothuis will speak on the relationship of faith and reason. On Tuesday night, September 24th at 7pm, Mark Mittelberg will join us to speak on "Understanding the Secular Landscape," which will cover the relationship between apologetics and evangelism. There will be a special question/answer session after the September 24th talk, which will include both Mark Mittelberg and Doug Groothuis.

Among other things, the Lewis Center will continue to offer lectures and longer community courses to the public.
