The first cohort for the course begins January 11, 2023 at 7pm EST. Participants will seek to experience the good news — traveling alongside a very human Jesus during the first days of his ministry, and walking with each other into 2023 as they will make their way through the first section of Dr. DeGear’s book-in-progress, Jesus Found in Translation. Join the forum to learn more about Dr. DeGear and her work. Enrollment is now open for PCS 202 at https://pcseminary.teachable.com
