Gospel Priorities Preaching Series

Service All Church Event

We’ll kick off the new year with our annual Gospel Priorities series. Beginning January 9, during both morning and evening worship, we will hear from guest pastors and some of our own team on the topics of biblical justice, sexuality, and wholistic health.

Join us these Sundays for worship as we continue to develop our Christian worldview.

Hans Madueme
Associate Professor of Theological Studies
Covenant College

Dr. Madueme is an Associate Professor of Theological Studies at Covenant College, where he has been on faculty since 2012. Before earning his MDiv and PhD, Dr. Madueme earned a medical degree and completed an internal medicine residency, which exposed him to the interface of science and theology. During this time, he began asking himself whether full-blooded, robust Reformed theology was still viable in the modern world. He went on to write his PhD dissertation in systematic theology, honing in on the doctrine of sin and difficult questions from biology. In addition to being passionate about preaching and teaching, he desires to mobilize first-rate scholars from our Reformed Christian tradition to make substantive contributions to the broader science-theology debate. He is married to his wife, Shelley Hyde Madeume, and they are blessed with two children, Caleb and Zoe.
