Springfield, Mo.-November 23, 2010-The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS) will host a public lecture with Dr. Amos Yong, Thursday, December 2, 1:15-2:30 p.m. in the Seymour Chapel at AGTS. The lecture, "One Body, Many Members: St Paul's Charismatic Ecclesiology and the Renewal of Dis/ability," will focus on answering the questions: "Was St. Paul the first disabled theologian?" and "Was he also the first charismatic theologian of disability?" An examination of the Galatian and Corinthian letters is suggestive of a positive response to these questions, particularly in light of the charismatic ecclesiology of one body and many Spirit-filled members.

Dr. Amos Yong serves as the J. Rodman Williams Professor of Theology at Regent University School of Divinity in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  His books forthcoming in 2011 include: Afro-Pentecostalism: Black Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity in History and Culture (New York University Press), Who is the Holy Spirit: The Acts of the Spirit, the Apostles, and Empire (Paraclete Press), The Spirit of Creation: Modern Science and Divine Action in the Pentecostal-Charismatic Imagination (Eerdmans) and The Bible, Disability, and the Church: A New Vision of the People of God (Eerdmans).


AGTS is one of the world's leading Pentecostal seminaries. Degrees offered include a Ph.D. in Bible and Theology, Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies, Doctor of Ministry, Doctor of Missiology, M.Div. and four M.A.s. Classes are offered in Springfield, Mo.; Sacramento and Scotts Valley, Calif.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Kirkland, Wash.; Orlando, Fla.; and Phoenixville, Pa.
