Professor Elaine Heath will lead Mission to Ministers on the topic of "Wisdom from Galatians for the Anxious Church." Elaine is a highly sought theologian, apostolic preacher, teacher, and prophet. Her work integrates systematic, pastoral, biblical and spiritual theology to constructively bridge the gap between academy and church, opening a path for missional emergence in both arenas.
Elaine is the McCreless Professor of Evangelism at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University. The Missional Wisdom Foundation was formed as a result of Elaine's collaborative work with several Perkins students, most notably Rev. Dr. Larry Duggins. As co-founder with Larry, she remains a chief architect of new educational initiatives in the Foundation. Elaine, Larry, and Dr. Bret Wells collaboratively lead the Missional Wisdom Foundation.
Bishop Claude Alexander of The Park in Charlotte will preach at 11:00 a.m.
Bishop Alexander has served as Senior Pastor of The Park Church since 1990. Born in Waterloo, Iowa and reared in Jackson, Mississippi, Bishop Alexander earned his Bachelor's Degree from Morehouse College, a Master of Divinity from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and a Doctorate of Ministry from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Under his leadership, The Park Church has increased to more than 9,000 members and three locations within Charlotte, NC.
A leader among both Christian and civic leaders, Bishop Alexander has worked with government and community officials to address the community's most critical issues.
