JT English (Still) Isn't Talking ABout the Brookside Institute in this Audio Segment. But in a Lot of Ways, He (Still) Could be.
A little more than a year ago, I highlighted an audio segment where JT English talks about the Institute at The Village Church. (Click here to see that.) I love hearing people articulate a passion and vision for biblical & theological equipping in the church and for the church - because of how closely this aligns with what we're trying to do with the Brookside Institute. And so I figured then that I'd highlight what The Village Institute is doing, and trust that people can connect the dots in some right ways over to the Brookside Institute.
Well, Dr. English is back at it.
Recently, I listened to this audio segment from the Village Church Podcast Show (Episode #30 - May 26, 2016) where JT English gives an explanation of their Institute and an update on it. The whole episode is worthwhile and I encourage you to check it out - below you'll find the first 10 minutes (unedited) where JT English speaks most directly on the Village Institute, because of how closely it touches on certain things we're trying to do with the Brookside Institute.
Remember: Dr. English is talking about the Institute at the Village - he's not talking about the Brookside Institute. Don't expect 100% overlap. There are certain things they've chosen to do there that we've chosen not to do at the Brookside Institute. But there's still A LOT of overlap.
Listen in and you'll hear a lot of things I found myself nodding my head to throughout the course of the segment. And for those of you already familiar with the Brookside Institute, you'll see how so many of these same emphases have taken shape - independently - in our own context.
Here's the audio:
Here are a few notes I was scrambling to type as I listened along - these may pull you into listening, if you're still on the fence:
By the way, this isn' the first time I've heard JT English affirming things that the Brookside Institute is all about. Here are some additional posts from this site where you can see what else he has to say:
