The College of Theology and Christian Ministry strives to provide our students with a multi-faceted education. We believe that learning doesn't just happen in the classroom. As a result, we host dozens of events each academic year that provide our students opportunites to learn, ask questions and engage in conversation outside of a class setting.
Below is a list of events sponsored by the College of Theology and Christian Ministry.
Academy of Preachers
Belmont’s College of Theology and Christian Ministry is a founding partner of the Academy of Preachers, an organization committed to inspiring young people in their call to Gospel preaching. We host campus and regional events designed to create opportunities for young men and women to preach.
Faith and Culture Symposium
Each Spring, the College of Theology and Christian Ministry hosts a week long Faith and Culture Symposium. This Symposium features speakers from across the United States who are invited to Belmont to explore how our faith intersects with culture. The Symposium concludes with our annual Jane A. Hishaw Distinguished Lecture, the 2015 Hinshaw lecture was presented by Enuma Okoro who spoke on worship from the life of a poet and writer.
Religion and the Arts Symposium
All Religion and the Arts majors participate in a capstone class where they meet artists and learn how to integrate their faith with their creative vision. This course culminates in a public showcase event where students display their own integration of faith and creative vision.
Convocations and Special Speakers
Each semester the College of Theology and Christian Ministry brings a number of speakers on campus. These individuals are leaders and innovators in ministry and in culture. Many of these speakers also work with our students in small groups during classes. We want to introduce our students to world changers so they can learn to change the world, too.
