Rev. Dr. Dennis Schultz, D. Min. of Mount Gilead will teach the upcoming Summer Seminar at Ohio Central Bible College. His topic will be “Paul’s Letter to the Romans.” The event will be held Saturday, July 7 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Iberia Presbyterian Church, 8607 County Road 30 in Iberia through the courtesy of the congregation.
Schultz is Dean of Faculty at OCBC, the pastor of the Concord Liberty Baptist Church in Johnstown and an adjunct professor at Mount Vernon Nazarene University. He is a graduate of Palmer Seminary of Eastern University (Doctor of Ministry in Marriage and Family), Westminster Seminary (M.A. in Religion) and Grace College (B.A. in sociology and journalism). Schultz is a veteran of the U.S. Army and served in Vietnam as a company clerk. After college he was a journalist for six years before attending seminary. Schultz was ordained by the American Baptist Churches/USA and has ministered in four churches over his 42 years of pastoral service.
Regarding the upcoming seminar, Schultz states “Romans is not only a weighty book of theology, but it is also a very practical guide for living the Christian life. In this seminar we will look at an overview and outline of the Letter, wrestle with well-known passages and examine a few sections that are of particular interest to the students who attend the seminar. So come to listen and discuss the New Testament book of Romans that Martin Luther identified with this description: ‘It is impossible to read or to meditate on this letter too much or too well.’”
Registration for the July 7 seminar will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the church. The cost is $20 per person, with lunch included. A certificate of completion will be available to those that attend. The general public, area ministers and church workers are most welcome. Phone (419) 946-5576 for more information or to preregister.
