Hi friends,

I wanted to make you aware of some great summer courses coming up (soon! Sorry for the late notice!) at Regent College. Below are three I think might be of interest to you:

Christine_longhurstCHRISTINE LONGHURST: Instructor, Worship Music, Canadian Mennonite University

Christine Longhurst has spent the past thirty years in worship ministry as pastor, worship leader and teacher. She is on faculty at Canadian Mennonite in University in Winnipeg, and offers workshops on worship in churches across Canada. She is curator of the popular re:Worship blog for pastors and worship leaders. 

She will be teaching the course More than Music: Reimagining Worship, from May 25-29, at 8:00-11:00 am, that can be taken for 1 or 2 credits, or audited.

For her work on John Calvin, she won a Templeton Prize and a Christianity Today “Award of Merit.” She and her husband Matt started their family and ministered in the Church of Scotland for thirteen years.  

She will be teaching the course Worship as a Way of Life, from June 1-12, at 8:30-11:00 am, that can be taken for 2 or 3 credits, or audited. 


Adrienne_dengerink_chaplinADRIENNE DENGERINK CHAPLIN: Independent Scholar, Cambridge, UK

Originally from Amsterdam, she taught for eight years at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto where she was also an Associate Member of the Toronto School of Theology. She served as President of the Canadian Society for Aesthetics from 2005 until 2007 and has published widely for both academic and public audiences. She co-authored the textbook Art and Soul: Signposts for Christians in the Arts and currently works as an independent scholar in Cambridge, UK. 

She will be teaching the course Coming to Our Senses: Art, Faith, and Embodiment, from July 20-24, at 1:15-4:15 pm, and it can be taken for 1 or 2 credits or audited.

 The cost per credit hour is CAD$ 470.00, and the cost per audit hour is CAD$ 320.00. If one prefers to audit the course, the cost to audit reflects the lower number of credits, so if the course is offered for 2 or 3 hours, then to audit it would cost 2 audit hours.
