Tuesday - June 14 - 7:00 PM (CT) - Don Veinot – The Enneagram, Discipleship and the Church
Discipleship is observation and imitation. All of us are discipling, some well and some not so well. Within the church leaders are to guard the flock, disciple them to be discerning and train them in the word and holy living based on the word. Does the Enneagram fit within scriptural faith and practice or it is in conflict with it?

Tuesday - June 14 - 8:00 PM (CT) - Dr. Doug Groothuis – The Enneagram and a Heretic’s Christ
Franciscan Friar Richard Rohr has been very influential in reshaping the theology and practice in large segments of the evangelical church. His disciples, Suzanne Stabile, Ian Cron, Christopher Heuretz, Beth McCord and others are some of the biggest selling authors from what are thought of as evangelical publishers. Is what he teaches biblically true or is the church embracing a Heretic’s Christ?
Douglas Groothuis, Ph.D., is Professor of Philosophy at Denver Seminary and the author of 15 books, including Christian Apologetics, 2nd ed. (2022). He has been publishing and teaching on cults, new religious movements, and apologetics for over forty years. Website: www.DouglasGroothuis.com
