This week we will have Ruben Fernandes. He will be instructing on the emerging church movement. He is a very active evangelistic member of the church of Espinho in Portugal, who also runs a corporate enterprise in Porto. The topics he is going to elaborate are: contemplative prayer, spiritual formation and the biblical issues found in various developments within and outside the adventist church. The purpose of this instruction is to provide the students with a sound and solid basis from which to access deceptive practices which sometimes we face. His teaching is derived from the Bible and the spirit of prophecy standpoint.
