New Sessions Begin Each Fall
Leadership for the Common Good
In ancient Greek, the agora was a gathering place in the middle of a city that served as the center for commerce, politics, education, the arts, religion and civic life. What happened in the agora shaped the society as a whole. Not much has changed. Today the ideas and practices that flow from the academies, churches/temples/synagogues, businesses, houses of government and studios profoundly change and shape the society in which we live.
The Agora Fellowship equips young professionals to integrate their Christian commitment and vocation enabling them to impact their professions for God’s kingdom and to be agents of cultural renewal.
The Fellowship is a nine-month intensive program designed to provide young professionals with a solid base of theological, ethical and cultural understanding. Through weekly readings and discussions, monthly gatherings, and one-on-one mentoring with a mature person in their profession, Fellows will develop as influential leaders in their professions who can serve effectively as ambassadors for God’s kingdom and contribute to the common good locally, regionally, nationally and even internationally.
· Complete weekly readings
· Attend and participate in weekly discussions over the readings
· Attend monthly gatherings to meet with guest speakers or go on excursions in and around the city of Lincoln
· Complete 2-3 written assessments over the course of the nine months
- Book fee of approximately $140

Building begins April 2017
Lincoln Berean's Staying Alive Ministry is excited to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln to build a home for a family in need. Building begins in April 2017 and here are a few ways you can help out:
– Support the build financially. We need to raise $90,000 to cover the cost of building materials and moving the home to its permanent lot. You can donate by going to
lincolnberean.onlinegiving.cc/donate/login or by placing a check in the offering with "Habitat" in the memo line.
– Donate your time and talent. We need people to do construction work and paint the house. Building will take place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Training will be provided, but all construction laborers must be at least 16 years of age.
– Provide meals for the construction laborers. Join a team to make sack lunches for the construction laborers each build day.
To sign up, contact Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-483-6512.
Sundays, June 04 - July 23, 9:00AM - 10:15AM
There is no shortage of talk about justice and appeals to justice in our culture. In most of these interactions, people take justice to be a political, legal, or ethical issue. It is also a theological one. This class attempts to develop a biblical theology of justice.
We will seek to arrive at an understanding of the concept of justice from both a survey of the biblical teaching of justice in the Old and New Testaments and a careful reading of Tim Keller's book Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just. We will discover that justice has more to do with the gospel and living as a disciple of Jesus than most Christians think. Additionally, our findings will cause us to rethink what it means for God to be just.
Location: D 103. Cost: $10 for book.

Have you ever thought, "There seems to be a little more to my child's behavior than just kid stuff. It shouldn't be this hard!"?
Sometimes we need to take a step back and look at what's going on around our children to understand what's going on inside our children. Bullying, divorce, learning disabilities, foster care, mental illness, serious medical issues temperament etc. These are normal influencers of behavior, but they often cause more intense responses, can be confusing to deal with, and might leave children (AND parents) needing more support.
This class will help you learn to step back and assess your children’s environment to understand how it affects them behaviorally. You'll be able to see the why, not just the how. Learn to address the environment in love and grace, how to use supports, and what it takes to foster change.
We will cover:
- The definition of childhood trauma
- The effects of trauma on development
- The effects of trauma on perception
- The long term effects of trauma
- How to help a traumatized child
- Secondary trauma
- The spiritual effects of trauma
Location: D 103. No cost.
