2018 Chafer Pastor’s Conference — Volunteers Needed

Need Congregational Help!

The annual Chafer Seminary Conference we'll be hosting March 12–14, 2018 requires a lot of effort on the part of the members of our church. This year we have lost many of our key members who are not going to be available to help in the way they have in the past in the area of overseeing the hospitality/kitchen part of the conference. We are looking for other members who might be willing to step up and help in all the logistics and preparation it takes to get ready for our annual conference. This is a volunteer commitment that would require a mid-January to March willingness.

If you have the time and the willingness to help, please e-mail Pam Richards know of your desire to help.

Chafer Seminary Training for YOU – Tuition Free!

Have you ever thought about taking a seminary-level course to expand your biblical study skills or knowledge of Scripture and theology? Or, do you desire to learn more about biblical or church history? How about learning some Greek or Hebrew?

Maybe your focus is not on being a pastor, but you teach Sunday School or are in church leadership. Here’s a wonderful opportunity for you.

If you are a member of West Houston Bible Church then you can take up to two Chafer Theological Seminary (CTS) course offerings tuition free. CTS has a partnership program whereby members of churches that contribute beyond a certain amount to CTS each year can take courses tuition free (maximum of two courses per student per semester). You just need to cover the cost of the registration fee ($30) plus any textbooks required for the course.

Registration for the Fall semester is under way.
