The Bible Faculty Summit Committee (Jeff Straub, Phil Brown, Ken Rathbun, Kevin Oberlin, Larry Oats, and Mark Ward) has come to the difficult decision that we must cancel the BFS for 2020.
We plead COVID-19.
The committee explored using Zoom, considered inviting pastors to listen in, and spoke to presenters to solicit their perspectives. But the best things about the BFS are difficult or even impossible on Zoom: open and expert feedback (and/or pushback!), fellowship with other PhD-level Bible teachers, and the opportunity for ice cream are all currently beyond its capabilities. As with church gatherings, the lockdown has helped clarify and elevate the value of face-to-face meeting.
And in God’s good providence, Faith Baptist Bible College has offered to facilitate such a meeting on July 27–29, 2021. Mark your calendars; we hope to see you there.
