Most of our Bible study throughout our Christian lives focuses on understanding God and learning how to live in right relationship to Him, ourselves, and each other- and this is certainly vital to our spiritual growth. However, the Bible also teaches us how to live in right relationship to every aspect of God's creation, which includes society, culture, art, economics, education, and politics just to name a few. Furthermore, the Bible helps us understand how to properly order (or re-order) the fallen world as we rejoin Christ in his work of restoring all things, This is where a "Christian worldview" proves vital.
Ours is a world where the "powers and principalities" are actively working to dis-order God's good creation in areas such as marriage, family, human sexuality, personhood, etc. As disciples of Christ, we cannot truly love our neighbors and remain indifferent to ideas and actions that do harm to people and God's creation. The fact is, ideas have consequences and bad ideas have victims. Because we care about the victims of "bad ideas", we are please to partner with the Colson Center for Christian Worldview in bringing the Colson Fellows Program to EPCBC.
The Colson Fellows Program is a transformational course that compresses a lifetime of Christian wisdom in ten months. This program will establish a solid foundation for those who are new to the study of Christian worldview and for those who are well-versed in Christian worldview and apologetics; you will gain new insights into today's rapidly changing cultural context. Colson Fellows-in-Training go beyond understanding worldview as mere arguments and facts and develop instead the critical thinking skills or wisdom to discern what is true, good, and beautiful in every situation so they can understand the times and know what to do.
Beginning each August, Colson Fellows-in-Training follow a carefully curated curriculum that helps them understand and identify worldviews and how they manifest in today's ideas, philosophies, policies and practice. You will learn how to analyze and understand culture and its influence. Additionally, we will examine current cultural flashpoints such as race relations, progressive sexuality, religious liberty, the role of government, economics, and sanctity of life to name a few. Finally, Colson Fellows-in-Training will examine the concept of "calling" and develop a "Three-Year" personal plan that aligns their mission with God's purpose.
