Join us May 17-18, 2021, in Nashville for our fourth annual ERLC Academy on “Introduction to Christian Ethics” taught by Russell Moore. The ERLC Ethics Academy is an academic initiative of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission that serves to equip pastors and students to apply the gospel to complex moral and ethical issues.

This course is for Christians who want to strengthen their understanding of ethics. ERLC Academy also offers those in seminary or college the opportunity to earn course credit. Whether you are a college or seminary student taking this for course credit with a partner school, or simply an interested pastor or lay leader, ERLC Academy seeks to offer foundational training for God’s people in an academic setting.

In an exclusive classroom setting, attendees will study with one of the top ethicists in the evangelical world to learn how to apply the gospel to foundational ethical issues. You’ll be equipped to answer important questions including:

  • How does the gospel shape an evangelical approach to ethics?
  • How can I understand the world around me and its approach to cultural engagement?
  • How do I navigate complicated ethical decisions that come up in my daily life?
  • How should I understand essential ethical issues like bioethics, marriage, sanctity of life, religious liberty, sexuality, decision making, and many more?

Seminary and college students can take this seminar for course credit with a partner school by completing additional course work in conjunction with the class. Students should contact their school for more information about course credit options. Students must register with their school and with the ERLC, too.

Previous partner schools have included The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Through lectures and Q&A time, all attendees will have a unique opportunity to learn the essentials of evangelical ethics. If you’ve ever wanted to study ethics with Russell Moore, this is your chance!

There will also be a Public Theology PhD and DMin seminar taught by Dr. Andrew T. Walker and featuring sessions with Dr. Russell Moore. Doctoral students will meet Monday through Friday of the same week for seminars and colloquiums.
