Peter: The Man,
His Mission, Our Call

YMBC and Agape, Redhead Hall, with Prof. Sandie Gravett

This month, Prof. Sandie Gravett teaches “Peter: The Man, His Mission, and Our Call Today” in YMBC (with Agape Class), Redhead Hall. The class continues through March.

Peter was called from his fishing boat to follow Jesus. From that humble beginning, tradition tells us he became the “rock” — a foundational figure of the Christian church. Making a quantum leap from a small village to renown throughout the Roman Empire required a character and a charisma that still speaks, even in our global, technology-driven world, to what it takes for Christianity to succeed. This study will explore Peter’s life and character and discover how he models what advancing the cause of Jesus looks like then and now.
