GradCru Fall 2018 Getaway
The Fall 2018 Getaway will be Saturday, October 27. We are thrilled to have as our guest speaker Jon Morales, who is pastor at the Royal Oak campus of Woodside Bible Church. WBC has 14 campuses in the metro Detroit region. After becoming a Christian at age 18, Jon felt called to pastoral ministry—a passion that has only increased through the years. Jon met and married his wife, Anna, in New York City in 1999 and they now have four children. Jon graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Arts, from Reformed Theological Seminary with a Master in Biblical Studies, and from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary with a PhD in New Testament Studies. Jon enjoys thinking about the Word of God, seeing people grow in worship of Jesus Christ, and eating chicken wings with his wife and children. His academic experience provides him common and relevant experience with us in GradCru–he knows the challenges, stress, rigorous schedule, and goals of being a graduate student.
Jon will speak twice on the theme of Our Achievements and the Worth of Christ. Graduate students are precise and driven. We like knowledge. We like achievement. We believe things can be better, and we can do something to make them better. We create. We research. We dream. We act. How does the knowledge of Jesus Christ, which according to the apostle Paul surpasses all things, redefine the greatest pursuits of our lives? During our time together we will explore how the worth of Christ realigns our value structures as he invites us to join him in world-remaking work.
