  • jc3 university

    JC3 University is a series of mid-range to advanced classes that cover and discuss a variety of topics as they relate to our faith and issues that face us as adults and Christians.  Pain and Suffering, How our Bible was formed, Understanding Islam, Death with Dignity and many other issues and topics that have previously been presented.  Classes are led by knowledgeable instructors, including professors from Carson-Newman and Johnson Universities.  Generally 2-4 JC3 University group classes are offered per year.  Join us on Wednesday evenings in "The Loft" from 6:30 - 8:00pm

    CURRENT SERIES -- Your Most Holy Faith

    Professor Charles Beckett of Johnson University is leading an exciting and meaningful series entitled "Your Most Holy Faith". What is the heart and soul of Christian faith? Jude informs his readers that this faith was entrusted to the saints by the Lord himself. Peter devoted his final years to writing about these precious promises so that believers could remember and have their faith refreshed after his departure. And Paul described the faith as God’s light shining in our hearts in order to display His glory in the face of Christ. Yet, he reminded us that we have this treasure in jars of clay . . .    

    God’s big story provides the context in which the central tenets of our faith emerge. The life-transforming power of these foundational truths will be fleshed out in the life of a 21st Century Christ-follower named Cheryl Beckett. Professor Charles Beckett’s daughter was tragically murdered serving and living out her faith in the country of Afghanistan.  Part of this series will look at living out a dedicated faith in Christ from Cheryl's example.
