Calvary Chapel: Seminary & Anti-intellectualism

by Kellen Criswell

Season 2 - Episode 1 Audio only


“In this episode Brian Brodersen and Kellen Criswell discuss the past and present of Calvary Chapel on formal ministry training and education. Important questions tackled in their conversation include: - Why has Calvary Chapel often been labeled ‘Anti-intellectual’? - Why are many Calvary Chapel leaders today experiencing new openness to using theological seminaries for part of their ministry preparation? - Why are the flagship Calvary Chapel Bible Colleges in Europe and North America pursuing formal accreditation? - What do these changes mean (and not mean) regarding Calvary Chapel’s historic commitment to the idea that formal education is not a necessary prerequisite for serving in ministry leadership?”
