This class will explore what it means to be a church of and for the 21st-century world. Discover how the modern church can meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving society and foster genuine connections. We’ll discuss practical strategies to unleash the true essence of God’s community and make a tangible difference locally.
The pivotal question we aim to answer is: how can the church’s potential be fully released here and now?
Tihomir Lazić is a Senior Lecturer in Systematic Theology at Newbold College and a former Director of Public Campus Ministry at the Trans-European Division of the Seventh-day Adventist church. He earned his doctorate (DPhil) in theology from the University of Oxford and specialises in contemporary ecclesiology, focusing on Adventist ecclesiology and identity. A central theme permeating Dr Lazić’s work over the past decade has been to grapple with what it means to be a church that resonates with and serves the needs of the twenty-first-century world. His other research interests include theological anthropology, pneumatology, epistemology, biblical theology, apologetics, ethnography, and ethics.
Linda Nottingham is retired in Florida.

About our class:
- The AT Sabbath Seminar is intended to be a courteous forum. We discuss and ask questions politely. We don’t accuse, get angry, put people down, or judge the state of their salvation.
- Stick to the topic in both comments and chat discussion.
- Make your comments and questions short—don’t dominate.
- Keep your microphones muted unless you are called upon to make your comment or ask your question.
- Indicate your interest in speaking by raising your electronic hand—under the “reactions” button.
- Please use your name when you sign in! Not your phone number, not your initials. This will help us differentiate you from unwelcome guests who want to disrupt us. You can set your name after signing on by clicking on the 3 dots next to your picture, which drops down a menu.
We look forward to getting acquainted with you!
