Engage Discipleship Summit features ‘Wounds That Heal’

Staff report

GREENVILLE — Dr. Stephen Seamands, author of the book “Wounds That Heal,” will examine the implications of Jesus’s crucifixion during the EUM’s Engage Discipleship Summit workshop on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Seamands is presenting a workshop based on this book that demonstrates how God enters lives through Jesus’ crucifixion—-and brings healing and redemption. This workshop is an event in EUM’s Engage Discipleship Summit, a discipleship ministry of the church. It will take place at EUM Church, 1451 Sater St., Greenville. The cost is $20 per person. For more information or to register for this workshop, visit www.eumchurch.org/event/wounds-that-heal-workshop.

Seamands currently serves as professor of Christian Doctrine at Asbury Theological Seminary. Prior to assuming a teaching position at the seminary in 1983, he pastored United Methodist churches in Linwood, Florence, and Elmer in southern New Jersey for eleven years. Steve is known for gracefully merging the classical and the practical. His courses on theology and doctrine are taught with a scholar’s mind and a pastor’s heart.

The son of missionary parents, Seamands was born and grew up in India. In addition to teaching and working with seminary students, Seamands is actively engaged in leading seminars and retreats and conducting spiritual renewal events in local churches across the U.S. He also has a deep concern for the spiritual needs of pastors and Christian leaders.

Seamands has developed a particular interest in the areas of emotional healing, spiritual warfare, and intercessory prayer. His workshops, “The Healing Power of Forgiveness,” and “Overcoming Barriers to Receiving God’s Love,” which he has presented at scores of churches and conferences, have ministered deeply to the brokenness in people’s lives.
