Our Reformation 500: Theology and Legacy – God’s Gospel and the EFCA
Feb 1, 2017 – Feb 3, 2017
Deerfield, Illinois
Trinity International University

2017 is the 500th anniversary of Luther’s posting of the 95 theses, what traditionally is known as the beginning of the Reformation. We join the celebration in giving thanks to God for this rediscovery of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our emphasis will be on the theology of the Reformation and its ongoing historical legacy, with a specific focus on the biblical gospel of grace, rediscovered by the Reformers (Luther referred to himself and the movement as Evangelicals, not Protestants), and its impact historically on the EFCA.

We are excited for our upcoming Theology Conference. Not only do we have a timely theme, we also have some of the premiere Evangelicals presenting lectures for us. They will focus on different aspects of the Reformation and its ongoing significance for us today.

Here are the lecture titles along with the speakers delivering the messages.

Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA’s Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
