Christ College

Christ College is an educational experience for those who desire biblical knowledge at every level. We offer courses for the newest Christian and for the seasoned veteran.

Christ College is designed to speak to those of us in the pews who want to learn about the God who meets us right where we are. 

We Have Two Goals:

  • To SHAPE the church with a deeper understanding of God's story.

  • To SEND the church out into the world with God's story. 

For students, we offer a summer-long residency version of Christ College here in Memphis.

Fall 2015 Course

Christ and His World

Tom Fuerst | Wednesdays thru November 11 | 6:15-7:30 p.m. | Seabrook Hall
In a world where everyone redefines Jesus according to our likeness, we need a fresh look at who Jesus was in His original historical setting. As a first-century Jewish man living under the thumb of the Roman Empire, Jesus spoke and acted in ways quite foreign to the ways we speak and act. This causes us to misunderstand, ignore and misapply the things Jesus taught. Join Tom Fuerst this fall as he leads this course designed to look at the earthly life of Jesus, God-in-the-flesh, with an eye toward reorienting ourselves toward His mission in the world.
