Each year HST has a theme for the year. We choose an important doctrine or scriptural theme to study more fully throughout the year. A faculty member writes an article on the theme that appears in the academic catalog, in The Bridge, and on this website. Our chapel sermons and the West Lectures always center on this theme. A banner hangs at the front of the chapel to remind us of our special focus for the year.

The theme for the 2015-2016 academic year is “The Power of the Spirit”. Dr. Mark E. Powell, professor of theology, wrote the theme article, which you may read here. Please join us this year as we reflect on the power of the Spirit in our lives and in the life of the church. We will occasionally provide theme-related resources on this blog and in our quarterly newsletter, The Bridge.
