In addition to covering the course material there will be significant opportunities for dialog and engagement and forming relationships. There will also be opportunities to visit Nigerian churches on the weekend.
Cost of the trip will be approximately $3800 including air travel, local accommodations, and meals. The dates are May 25-June 11. Deadline for making reservations is April 15. If you would like additional details please contact Dr. Reese or Mark Royster

OASIS DAY RETREAT WITH DR. STEVE HARPER
In cooperation with the Canterbury Retreat Center, Asbury Theological Seminary students are invited to attend a day-long retreat centered on Steve’s book Talking in the Dark on Monday, April 16 from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. This may be a time and a theme that would be good for you and a friend (or small group) to experience together, so you can continue the conversation after the Oasis Day itself. Consider inviting others to come with you. This retreat is offered to Asbury Seminary students AT NO COST with funding through the Lilly Foundation. If you are interested in attending, please register with Dr. Kandace Brooks. Other members of your church who are not Asbury Seminary students may attend for a cost of $45, and should make reservations with Sue Grosso or 407.365.5571.
