Start Time: 7:30pm

Admission is Free

Lecture Topic: Queen Victoria and General Gordon: Heroes in the Age of Empires

Two of the larger-than-life figures within the British empire’s late-nineteenth century panoply of heroes were Major-General Charles George Gordon (1833-1885), often referred to as Chinese Gordon for his involvement in suppressing a rebellion in China, and Queen Victoria (1819-1901), who reigned from 1837 to her death in 1901.

Upon his death General Gordon was described as “the nearest approach to that one Man, Christ Jesus, of any man that ever lived.” Vying for accolades of divinity was Queen Victoria. Upon her death it was stated “were we in the habit of deifying monarchs, we would not, in Queen Victoria, have the worst example of history for such exaltation.”

Both Gordon and Queen Victoria were heroic figures in the age of empires, a period coinciding with the New Imperialism, and it is that link with empire that is the focus of this research. More specifically, what role did those two heroes play in the imagination and discourse of Baptists living in the age of empires? The focus is on Baptists within the empire – with special attention to Canada.

Renowned theologian and author Dr. Kevin Vanhoozer will be teaching on the topic of discipleship and the local church at the upcoming Ministry Leadership Day being held at Heritage College & Seminary on Thursday, March 26, 2020.

Dr. Vanhoozer currently serves as Research Professor of Systematic Theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois.  He is also the author and editor of a number of books including his latest release, Hearers and Doers: A Pastor’s Guide to Making Disciples Through Scripture and Doctrine.

Dr. Wayne Baxter, Associate Professor of New Testament and Greek at Heritage Theological Seminary, describes Dr. Vanhoozer as a brilliant theologian, and is excited to have come to this year’s event to talk about the value of teaching sound, scriptural doctrine in the discipleship of those in the church.

“Whereas many gifted academics reserve their brilliance for the academy, God has given Dr. Vanhoozer a burden to help shepherd the church and its leaders theologically,” says Dr. Baxter. “I’m excited to see what theological discipleship looks like in the local church and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to pose questions to one of the brightest minds in the church today.”

Ministry Leadership Day is an annual event organized and hosted by Heritage Theological Seminary and welcomes pastors and ministry leaders to Heritage for a day of encouragement and equipping through relevant, practical, and theological teaching about topics connected to the health of local churches.

Dr. Rick Reed, President of Heritage College & Seminary, believes that the topic of biblically rooted discipleship is important for health and life of today’s church. He hopes that pastors and leaders will attend this year’s event to learn more about this subject.

“All who are engaged in making disciples through local church ministry will benefit from the biblical insights and ministry implications that Dr. Vanhoozer will bring to us at this year’s Ministry Leadership Day,” says Dr. Reed.

This year’s Ministry Leadership Day will also include a special lunch option for pastor’s wives and women serving in ministry attending the event hosted by Dr. Linda Reed, Director of the Heritage Centre for Women in Ministry.
