Cherith Fee Nordling: The Cruciform Call to Glory 2/4

Join us this Wednesday, February 4 from 1-2:30p at the ATO Chapel as the Henry Center welcomes Northern Seminary’s Dr. Cherith Fee Nordling. Dr. Nordling will be continuing the Henry Center’s conversation on the church and task of reconciliation through the Scripture & Ministry lecture series. As always, free cookies, brownies, coffee will be available!

More on the lecture:
Of all the metaphors for restored union with God in Christ, reconciliation speaks to the heart of God’s relational commitment to us, and to all of his creation. In it we also hear our call to become who we always will be, human children, conformed to the image of the Son by the Life-Giving Spirit, joined to the life and work of the Triune God in the world. This conformity, however, refers not only to our future, glorified state, but also to the present and costly act of suffering with Christ for the reconciling renewal of our minds, bodies, and communities.

Trinity Law School graduate to serve with major human rights organization

Trinity Law School 2014 graduate, Angie Zetterquist, has been appointed as Legal Fellow for the International Justice Mission (IJM). She will be serving the organization in Southeast Asia for one year.

“This is a life-changing transition for me,” says Zetterquist. “Armed with my Trinity law degree and having passed the California Bar, I will be assisting and learning from the IJM legal staff as they plead the cases of the victims of sex trafficking and prosecute the perpetrators in the local court system.”

Since 2006, the International Justice Mission has rescued over 19,000 people from violence and oppression, and secured the convictions of over 800 violent criminals. Statistics show that nearly 36 million people are victims of modern-day slavery, and over 2 million children are caught in the commercial sex trade. Headquartered in Washington D.C., International Justice Mission has eighteen field offices located throughout the developing world, protecting the poor from violence.

“I have known the work of IJM for many years and have great respect for its effectiveness in bringing justice to the darkest corners of the world,” says Myron Steeves, Dean of Trinity Law School. “So I am extremely proud that our alumna Angie Zetterquist has been appointed by IJM to do great things for God with her law degree.”

Professor William Wagner, Director of Trinity’s Center for Human Rights, says Zetterquist’s appointment reflects the school’s commitment to international justice. “As Christians, we are called to be salt and light in the world, and it is a blessing to see Angie answering this call,” said Wagner.

PARKSIDE CHURCH IN SUBURBAN CLEVELAND, OHIO IS CURRENTLY SEEKING ONE YEAR PASTORAL INTERNS AND MISSIONS INTERNS, FOR INTERNSHIPS STARTING SEPTEMBER 2015.

We are a Bible-based, evangelical, non-denominational church led by senior pastor Alistair Begg. Our pastoral team serves over 4,000 Sunday attendees at three locations.

We are primarily targeting graduating senior men (from the undergraduate and graduate levels) who sense that full-time pastoral ministry and/or missions may be in their future. In addition, we are also interested in juniors who may be considering their next move after graduation. Potential interns are not required to have a ministry-type major to be considered, or even have a tremendous amount of prior experience.

This internship specifically offers opportunities to practice Biblical teaching in various ministry settings, observe and assist in the leadership of adult and youth ministries, and participate in our pastoral staff meetings, general church functions, short-term missions trips, etc. Parkside’s intern program is designed to not only provide a year of practical experience, but also to help young men discern God’s call for their life by developing relationships with our pastoral team, and with Parkside-supported missionaries. The church will also send interns to the Trinity Evangelical Divinity School Akron extension for seminary classes during the year of their internships, and pay for all tuition and books.

A member of our pastoral team will be on campus on February 11th to conduct interviews with those interested in the internship. To request a meeting, reply by email only to internship@parksidechurch.com.
