When you think of your own education, or the way you teach, what comes to mind? How does theology inform education, and how does education respond to race, culture, and community? Join Jeff and Emily as they talk to Dr. Elizabeth Conde-Frazier and Dr. La Mont Terry about some current norms in education and their vision for education that is more contextual, collaborative and responsive to the needs of the community. We talk about the implications of race and culture in the classroom, freedom, the imago Dei, the Trinity, and more.
Elizabeth Conde-Frazier is a pastor, theologian, and nationally recognized authority on Hispanic Bible Institutes. Until recently she was the dean of Esperanza College of Eastern University. She now leads a major grant project for the Association of Hispanic Theological Education.
