Adam and Jonathan had a good, long chat with Katie and Dr. Kent Philpott from Miller Avenue Baptist Church in Mill Valley, CA about their experiences with Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary and their perspectives on the relationship between the seminary and its neighbors in Marin County. This episode marks our first with a pair of interviewees; in this case, they are a married couple.
There are a few hiccups in the audio of this interview, and for that, we apologize. Please bear with us, as the Philpotts' story is a helpful and needed one.
Jonathan and Adam discuss the history of the field education vital to the masters degrees that GGBTS confers with the current Director of Theological Field Education, Dr. Glenn Prescott. He shares with us insights about the "godfather of TFE," as well as some of the land development challenges the seminary faced as it considered whether to stay in Mill Valley or sell and move somewhere else.
