Upcoming Mini Semesters
GNS 141: Intro to Human Sexuality - Chantal Gadsby
BTH 345: Acts of the Apostles - Stephen Williams
We asked our mini semester teachers to tell us a little bit about themselves:
My Name is Chantal Gadsby. I have my Bsc. in Psychology from the University of Northern British Columbia and my MA in Counseling Psychology from Yorkville University in New Brunswick. I am currently living in Nipawin, Saskatchewan, where my husband Jordan and I have co-pastored Nipawin Apostolic Church for 7 years. I'm teaching Intro to Human Sexuality; a course in which we will examine how science, religion, culture, and the media influence our understanding of sexuality. We will focus on a variety of topics relating to sexuality as well as on practicing empathy; developing a Christian worldview of sexuality; and applying this information as life-long learners, pastors, and leaders. I'm excited to be teaching because I think this information is so incredibly valuable for Christians in a world where we talk about sex everywhere EXCEPT in the church; and, honestly, because the thought of teaching scares me and I know that every time I do the scary things that God asks me to do, He shows up in the best ways.
Rev. Stephen Williams is teaching the Acts of the Apostles.
My name is Rev. Stephen Williams (Diploma, BTh, GradCert, MTS, MTh (i.p.). I have served in full-time pastoral ministry for 15 years and also serve as an adjunct faculty member at both Master’s College and Seminary in Peterborough, Ontario, and at Bridges Christian College in New Orleans, LA, USA. I’m originally from the Maritimes, have lived in Alberta for 2.5 years, and I am now transitioning to Ontario. I will be teaching Acts this mini-semester with an emphasis on the role of the Holy Spirit in empowering the Early Church to take the gospel to “the ends of the earth”! I’m excited to teach because I get the opportunity to invest in future leaders who, with the Spirit’s power, make an impact for the Kingdom of God.
