As we have recently run a series of post about the importance of theological education and the local church, I wanted to draw our readers attention to a new initiative associated with Reformed Theological Seminary--the Paideia Center. Adopting a regionally based approach to continuing theological study for pastors and lay leaders, the Paideia Center will form reading groups in Charlotte, NC, Chattanooga, TN, Dallas, TX, Hillsdale, MI, Orlando, Fl, Philadelphia, PA, Washington, DC and online. Reading and discussion groups will meet to work through ancient, medieval and reformational texts, while being led by a number of established professors and pastors. Space will be limited for the groups, so keep an eye out for the registration. You can find out more here.
