Main sessions: Back to the Future: Men and women in the church through the lens of our origins and our future (Nick Tucker)
Nick is Vicar of St Bartholomew’s Edgbaston in Birmingham, England. He previously served with the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF) supporting Universities in Birmingham and the West Midlands region and was then, after theological training and a Curacy, on the faculty at Oak Hill College, where he taught Church History and Doctrine. He studied under David Bebbington for his PhD on “The influence of Romanticism on Edward Irving’s Christology” and is engaged in a number of writing projects alongside his pastoral work in the parish. He is married to Sam and they have three kids. Nick has always enjoyed sport and is currently attempting to train for an iron man triathlon.
Nick will speak on Paul’s application of Genesis 2-3 to relationships between men and women in the Church, seeing how both Ephesians 5 and 1 Timothy 2 are expressions of his understanding of humanity.
Plenary session: Why I love the Apostle Paul (Jane Tooher)
Over the years, including up to our present day, there has been endless lectures and sermons given, as well as books, articles and blog posts published, about the Apostle Paul. Women and men have long been fascinated by this man whose writings—on various topics, including those to do with the ministries of women and men—divide people. On the 10-year anniversary of the launch of the Priscilla & Aquila Centre (P&A), Jane Tooher, the founding director of P&A, will share some of the reasons why she loves the Apostle Paul.
Jane has served on the faculty of Moore since 2009, lecturing in Ministry and Church History, and directing Moore’s Priscilla & Aquila Centre. Before joining the faculty she served in local church ministry in London and Sydney. Her published works include, “A Friendship Revealed. The Marsden & Stokes Family Correspondence” in Freedom to Libel: Samuel Marsden v Philo Free: Australia’s First Libel Case (Bolt, 2017), and “The People Who Listen: The Corporate Task of Hearing God’s Word” in Doctrine for Declaration: Explorations in the Theological Foundations for Biblical Preaching (eds. C. Kuhn & P. Grimmond; Bellingham: Lexham, forthcoming).
Electives will take place before and after afternoon tea. Choose one from the list for Session 1 and one from the list for Session 2.
