The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) will hold their board of directors meeting in Springfield, Mo., at the Assemblies of God Headquarters March 10-11. Through a new initiative, the NAE desires to partner with educational institutions to present educational forums around the country. The NAE has asked Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS) to partner with them in developing the first of these forums entitled "Respecting Sex and Reducing Abortions — What Can Christian Leaders Really Do?" The forum will be held at AGTS on Friday, March 12, from 9-11:30 am.
Key note speaker for this event will be Dr. Dennis Hollinger, president of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, Mass. Dr. Hollinger is author of a critically acclaimed new book entitled The Meaning of Sex: Christian Ethics and the Moral Life (http://www.amazon.com/Meaning-Sex-Christian-Ethics-Moral/dp/0801035716). Following Hollinger's presentation, he will be joined by a panel of leaders including Rev. Joe Fuiten, pastor of Cedar Park Church in Bothell, Wash. Pastor Fuiten's church provides leadership for creative responses to the abortion issue in the Seattle area. Also on the panel will be Cindi Boston who serves as director of the Pregnancy Care Center in Springfield, Mo. Her advocacy and leadership in compassionate response to this issue is well-known in the area.
