Alumni Winter Refresher

Each January, WSC features a number of special elective courses as part of the Winter term course offerings. One of these courses is selected as our Winter Refresher for alumni and is intentionally scheduled during the week leading up to our Annual Conference in order to help alumni make the most of a trip back to Southern California and reconnect with faculty and former classmates.

One of the many benefits enjoyed by WSC alumni is the opportunity to audit classes (i.e., obtain a Listener’s Pass) for free after graduation. While this benefit is available to alumni throughout the year, the Winter Refresher is an especially wonderful opportunity to refresh on your seminary education, reconnect with your favorite WSC faculty and fellow alumni, and renew your commitment and calling to glorify Christ, proclaim his Gospel, and serve his Church.

2024 Winter Refresher

The Life and Thought of Theodore Beza (HT652)

Dr. David Noe, Professor Emeritus of Classics at Calvin University, pastor of Reformation OPC in Grand Rapids, MI, and proprietor of Latin Per Diem

Tuesday–Friday, Jan 16–19 | 1:15–4:30 pm PT

1 credit hour | In-Person

Course Description: This course is an introduction to the life and work of French Reformer Theodore Beza, 1519–1605. We will examine in brief Beza’s education prior to conversion, his time at Lausanne, and finally his long service in Geneva as Calvin’s successor in the company of pastors. Readings will be drawn from primary sources, as well as works by Scott Manetsch, Kirk Summers, and the instructor.

Special Conference Deal for Alumni

Get free conference registration when you bring a prospective student to SFAD!

In addition to free auditing of Dr. Noe’s The Life and Thought of Theodore Beza course, WSC is offering FREE conference registration to alumni who bring a prospective student to our Seminary for a Day event on January 19. If you know a possible future seminarian—perhaps a college student who shows evidence of a calling to ministry or an elder who would make a fantastic pastor—this is the perfect time to introduce them to WSC!

Seminary for a Day is a completely free event, and participants can receive up to $400 toward their travel expenses through our travel grant program. Plus, we can provide up to 2 nights of free lodging for them (either on-campus or in a nearby hotel). Participants in our January SFAD generally receive free conference registration as an added perk and, as a special gift, we’re offering the same deal to our alumni when you bring an SFAD participant with you to the conference!

Just have them register here and put your name in the comment box. We’ll reach out within 1 business day to confirm your free conference registration!
