Teaching Opportunity in the Ukraine

There is an opportunity to teach at the Zaporozhye Bible College and Seminary in Ukraine in their MA program.

ZBCS is a missionary endeavor. It is a nonprofit organization. All visiting professors are in effect short term missionaries. You would need to raise your own airfare and bring 250 Euro (or equivalent) for food and transport.

Philip A Gottschalk, Chair, Division of Theological & Historical Studies at Tyndale Theological Seminary in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is coordinating it. A couple TTS grads are involved there, Vladimir Gorbenko and Vadym Proshak. Vladimir is the Academic Dean at ZBCS and Vadym has been the Dean of Students.

The following are possible dates for teaching one week long seminar classes
1. September 19 – 26, 2014
2. November 7 – 14, 2014
3. January 9-16, 2015
4. March 13-20, 2015
5. May 1-8, 2015

One could do a seminar in one's area of specialty. Dr. Gottschalk has taught two courses there, and will teach a seminar this month on Russian Sophiology/ Panentheism from his MA and PhD research.

Courses students have taken:
-Foundations for Theology
-The Ethics of War, Peace, and Peace-Making
-Philosophical Theology (history of Panentheism from Pre-Socratics to Russian Sophiologists)

Potential Future Courses:
-Bibliology (Dr. Peter Hays, Tyndale TS, NL)
-Old Testament (Dr. Forrest Weiland, Veritas Evangelical Seminary, Murietta, CA, USA)
-Pneumatology (Dr. Philip A Gottschalk, Tyndale TS, NL)
-Apologetics/ Philosophy of Religion (Dr. David Beck, Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA, USA)

The class is made up of handpicked graduates of the undergraduate program at ZBCS and some other teachers from their faculty, who are being prepared for teaching on the undergraduate level. Some have already studied in other seminaries on an MDiv or MA level in the US and elsewhere.
