A good thing happened for seminary students this June. The Seminario Nazareno de las Americas or SENDAS (the Nazerene Seminary of the Americas) came to an accord with the Bible Society of Costa Rica over the podcasting of a relevant radio program that features some of Costa Rica’s most well-known Theologians. The program is called “God speaks today”.
The Bible Society of Costa Rica and other evangelical societies have been producing and running the program for years. The show highlights interviews with the most respected and known Theologians in Costa Rica and discusses many topics from the biblical standpoint. For this reason, “God speaks today” is very relevant to the seminary and its students. Putting the program on-line where people can listen to the program at any time will increase its reach and demographic.
The two institutions got together via the producer and announcer of “God speaks today”, Francisco Zuñiga and SENDAS undergraduate program coordinator, Franlym Pena. The agreement was signed on June 8th and the web site for the programs podcast is now under construction.
“It seems to me that making this agreement is an excellent contribution for the students of Latin America in that they can learn more about the Bible,” said the general director of the Bible Society.
According to SENDAS president Ruben Fernandez, a major challenge for theological educations is reaching those who desire to prepare themselves to serve, but are not located near a study centre.
“This audio material will help to give more depth to what the professor is teaching and will serve as a consultation resource for the students of the Nazarene seminary, to enrich their learning. The Bible is the center of all that we do. I am a defender of the Bible. This relationship between SENDAS and SBCR is a win-win situation and the most important part is that, above all else, it will advance the kingdom of God.” –Ruben Fernandez
There is no economic advantage for either institute on the table in the agreement. The entire goal is to broaden the reach of the program’s teachings with no additional financial gain.
