The Religion & Theology Department is scheduled to host Code Red on January 20 and 21, specifically designed for religion and theology students – aspiring ministers. This innovative, annual mini-conference features some of the brightest theologians of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, several of whom are OakwoodUniversity alumni. Presentations under this year’s theme, “Anchored,” will focus on “how to be steadfast and unmovable in ministry.” Topics include calling/professional identity, self-acceptance, emotional IQ, the single pastor, dealing with members, guarding against burnout, managing time, finances/retirement, and religion vs. relationship.
Organizers include MyRon Edmonds, D.Min., ’99, pastor of the Glenville Seventh-day Adventist Church in Cleveland, Ohio, and Michael Polite, ’12, associate chaplain at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan.
