Spiritual Deepening Week, Jan. 28-30

Carla Sunberg is the speaker for Spiritual Deepening Week.

Chapel services this week are this semester’s Spiritual Deepening Week. The speaker for these special chapel services is the Rev. Carla Sunberg, PhD, the newly elected president of Nazarene Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Mo., and a co-superintendent (with her husband, Chuck) of the East Ohio District Church of the Nazarene.

Sunberg’s ministry experience has included missionary service and pastoral responsibilities. For 13 years Sunberg and her husband were missionaries in the former Soviet Union; she was director of  compassionate ministries and director of theological education during their years there. When the Sunbergs returned to the U. S., they were pastors at Grace Point Church of the Nazarene, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and she was pastor of evangelism and discipleship. In 2011 she and her husband accepted the co-superintendency of the East Ohio District Church of the Nazarene.

Earlier this year she was elected as the first female president of Nazarene Theological Seminary.

Chapel services are at 9:30 AM on Tuesday and Thursday and at 10 AM on Wednesday. Evening services will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 PM.
