Summer theological training course for lay people

The summer theological training course for lay people is a course designed to provide people without special theological training with the rudiments of Adventist theology.

The course is primarily designed for members of the Seventh-day Adventist Christian Church, who are increasingly involved in liturgy, preaching and catechesis.

However, non-Adventist people who would like to familiarize themselves with Protestant theology as declined in the Adventist church are not precluded from attending. In this case, the first week of the course is also open to non-Adventists.

How to participate

Speak to the pastor of your church and he will forward your request to your home camp president, and he will finally be the one to authorize your enrollment in the course and report your name to us by July 26, 2024.

The course is completely free of charge for Adventist participants, as their living expenses will be covered by the Italian Union and the local church, which will contribute by contributing €160.00 to the Adventist Institute.

Participation of a non-Adventist person is subject to a motivational interview and cover letter to be sent to info@villaaurora.it, attention of the director.

The course also includes the participation of Adventists from other unions or federations. In that case, the expenses are the responsibility of the student or the home church.
