(Argentina CNSAM). The 9th Seminar of Continued Education for Professors (FADES) was held from March 22 – 24th in Pilar, Buenos Aires, Argentina. More than 55 professors from different provinces in Argentina and Uruguay plus the staff from the Nazarene Theological Seminary of the Southern Cone attended.
It was a three day period of hard work and training, in which everyone felt the presence of God speaking through His Word in each of the classes, in each devotional and each service.
During the last 9 years the Nazarene Theological Seminary of the Southern Cone has carried on a Program of Continued Education for Professors who serve in ETED (Theological Education by Extension). In each course there is a combination of devotional time, classes in various areas of specialization of academic studies, times of fellowship and theological reflection.
