TRIonlyOur final core Ridley Institute class, “What We Believe:  An Introduction to Christian Theology” will begin next Tuesday, September 22. This ten-week course covers, in a systematic fashion, essential topics of the Christian faith. This is a new course in Christian systematic theology, never before taught at Ridley which will be resourced first and foremost through the scriptures, but will also lean heavily on writings within our own Anglican tradition. As always, participating in a Ridley course is not just about learning but also about mission.  A portion of your tuition goes to pay for the live streaming service to impoverished churches all over the world that otherwise could not afford theological education for their clergy and lay leaders.

The class will be taught by The Rev’d Robert Sturdy. The cost is $120 and includes dinner. You can register for the class and take a look at the topics covered at TheRidleyInstitute.com. If you do not live in the area, you can also register to watch the class via live streaming.


Today the Ridley Institute trains nearly 400 lay students a year in the thought and practice of Reformation Anglicanism as well as serving and preparing pastors and church planters for their ministries. We are privileged to be served by renowned Cranmer scholar, Dr. Ashley Null as our Senior Research Fellow and enjoy an international team of visiting scholars and church leaders to help advance our vision of Reformation Anglicanism in the church and the world.

TRI-Logo-Transparent-BkgdDear Friends,

Beginning on January 20, 2015 the school of theology at St. Andrew’s, the Ridley Institute, will host multiple world renowned theologians, a Christianity Today Book of the Year Award Winner (2013), a former President of the Vineyard Churches and current ACNA church planting Bishop (and New Wine speaker), and many other well known (and not so well known!) pastors and teachers to lead us in a ten-week study of the Person and ongoing work of the Holy Spirit. Blending head, heart, and practice our sessions will address what the Bible teaches us about the Holy Spirit, how we can have a living relationship with Him today, and in what ways he equips us for ministry and mission in the church and for the world. With a particular intent to marry good teaching to good practice we will also have opportunities for ministry time.

Our Schedule:

  • January 20: A Biblical Theology of the Holy Spirit – Lecturer: Erika Moore
  • January 27: A Systematic and Historical Approach – Lecturer:Rob Sturdy
  • February 3: The Holy Spirit and the Ministry of Jesus – Lecturer: Peter Walker
  • February 10: The Holy Spirit and Regeneration – Lecturer: Gerald Bray
  • February 17: The Sealing of the Spirit – Lecturer: Ashley Null
  • February 24: Communion with the Holy Spirit – Lecturer: John Hall
  • March 3: Practicing the Gifts of the Holy Spirit – Lecturer: Steve Wood
  • March 10: True Spiritual Revival – Lecturer: Gerald McDermott
  • March 17: The Holy Spirit and Evangelism – Lecturer: Todd Hunter

Some evenings will follow the typical Ridley format, with a teaching followed by small group and then question and answer. Other evenings participants will have the opportunity to participate in ministry time, seeking to apply the lessons learned in intentionally practical sessions. We do hope you’ll join us in person for this exciting series and would encourage you to share this series with friends and colleagues all over the world who can participate via our live-streaming service. For registration and more details visit theridleyinstitute.com.

*A portion of every registration goes towards equipping ministry partners with theological education in areas of the world where cost or opportunity prohibit clergy from receiving the training they need.

For more information or to register, please visit TheRidleyInstitute.com. For those that live outside of the Charleston area, this class is also available via live stream on the web.

In the family,
