Welcome to The Epworth Pulpit! This site is a project of the Center for Faith & Culture at Olivet Nazarene University. Our project is the intersection of faith and culture, where Christian life and ministry happen. You will find resources for thinking about ministry and engaging issues posed by our engagement with culture.


In this issue you will find articles dealing with a Wesleyan approach to understanding immigration (God Talk), an exploration of why Christians should be interested in creation care (People of the Land), and the benefits for families of worshipping the Christian calendar (Family Ministry).


Still current you will find articles dealing with gay marriage and the church (A Word in Time), human trafficking (Setting the Captive Free), leading worship (Considering Worship), and rethinking the missional church in a postmodern context (Congregational Ministry. We also host Pulso Hispano, an ongoing conversation among our Spanish speakers.


Our archive of prior articles continues to make them available to you. Feel free to explore our library of resources.
