Porterbrook - Campus Bologna plenary session

Tomorrow from 3.30 to 7.00 pm
we'll have the plenary session for
students of foundation and advanced years of Porterbrook - Campus Bologna.

This meeting will be held in
San Lazzaro Church and we expect about
15 students for the foundation years and
15 for the advanced years.


The Foundation Year 1 students will interact with the module Gospel Living,
led by Mark Brucato, co-pastor of Nuova Vita.

In this session, students will interact with these units:
3. Looking back: to the Cross
4. Looking around: at the Christian Community
5. Looking forward: to Eternity
6. Living now: Decisions
7. Living now: Friendships
8. Living now: Horizons
9. Living now: Possessions

This course is all about the very heart of the Christian life. Living a gospel centred life rooted and built up in Christ crucified, raised and ascended for us, is the goal and power of the Christian life. Learn to walk in the gospel.

The Advanced Year 2 students will interact with these modules:

The first module is Union with Christ,
led by Gian Luca Derudas, co-pastor of Nuova Vita.

In this session, students will interact with these units:

7. How Union With Christ Impacts Everyday Life
8. Motivation And Mission
9. Keeping Going In Mission

Union with Christ is the centre of the gospel. It’s been called the central doctrine of salvation. This course will teach you how the profound truth of a Christian's union and identity with Christ drives us to mission and joy in him.

The second module is The Holy Spirit,  led by Stefano co-pastor of ImpattoABudrio.

In this session, students will interact with these units:
7. Communion with the Spirit
8. The consummator Spirit: part one
9. The consummator Spirit: part two

Discover the Holy Spirit from a gospel perspective.
Learn to discern and enjoy the work of the Holy Spirit in everyday discipleship and mission.
The Holy Spirit is often the forgotten member of the Trinity or His work is emphasised apart from the gospel. This course helps us see the central role of the Holy Spirit in creation and redemption. Understanding the work of the Holy Spirit empowers and shapes gospel mission and discipleship in the local church.
