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.
The scholarship is being established at Oakwood University in memory of George Floyd and to honor his life by supporting students pursuing higher education in preparation for a life of service. To donate to this fund visit https://give.oakwood.edu/george-floyd-memorial-scholarship/ .
