Administrators Present at SPS Conference

Two members of Southwestern Christian University’s administrative team added to their growing academic portfolio with presentations at a national convention studying Pentecostalism.

SCU President Dr. Reggies Wenyika and theology professor Dr. Adrian Hinkle were among a group of distinguished scholars who spoke at the Society for Pentecostal Studies National Convention on the campus of Southeastern University in Lakeland, Fla. Last week.

Dr. Wenyika’s paper presentation was titled "A Pentecostal Perspective of Faith/Learning Integration: The Foundation of Spirit-Intellectualism and Spirit-Pedagogy." Dr. Hinkle’s paper presentation was titled "Pedagogical Theory of the Hebrew Bible: An Application of Educational Theory to Biblical Texts."

Both presentations were well-received and sparked lengthy discussions among those in attendance.

The Society for Pentecostal Studies began in 1970 and is an organization of scholars dedicated to providing a forum of discussion for all academic disciplines as a spiritual service to the kingdom of God. The purpose of the Society is to stimulate, encourage, recognize, and publicize the work of Pentecostal and Charismatic scholars and scholars of Pentecostalism; to study the implications of Pentecostal theology in relation to other academic disciplines, seeking a Pentecostal world-and-life view; and to support fully, to the extent appropriate for an academic society.
