Jay Pathak, Senior pastor of the Mile High Vineyard in Denver, CO

Topic: The Spectrum of the Kingdom.

As you search for a new church in your college town, choose a podcast to feed your soul, lead a Bible study or listen to worship music, you will experience the variety of meanings attached to the phrase “Kingdom of God”. In the Vineyard movement, our 1st core value is the “Theology and Practice of the Kingdom of God”. Tune into this webinar with Jay Pathak as he breaks down the spectrum of meanings that can be attached to this phrase and what it means to us as Vineyard people. How does the Kingdom of God affect your life; your friendships, your calling, the pain you encounter, the pursuit of justice, healing and failures? Bring your questions and comments as we dialogue through this life-changing concept.

The recording of this webinar did not meet the standards we were hoping for as we had some internet issues, BUT we do want to provide you with a link of a different teaching Jay did on this topic that is fantastic! Enjoy: Kingdom teaching with Jay Pathak (passcode: HLI)

A PhD candidate in the Department of Religion at Princeton University, specializing in American religious history, he has taught at Fordham University and Princeton Theological Seminary.
