Christian Formation Workshop w/Keynote Speaker The Rev. Dr. Chip Prehn

Feb. 1, 2020  -  9:00am-12:30pm St. Philip's Episcopal Church - Frisco, TX

The Rev. Dr. Walter L. “Chip” Prehn was ordained in the Episcopal Church in 1985 and served as a parish priest for twelve years. These years included a vigorous teaching ministry, including work as instructor in Historical Theology at the Bishop’s School for Ministry in San Antonio 1993-1996 (Anglicanism 1700 to Present). Prehn responded to a powerful call to enter schoolwork in 1996. The late Jennings Waggoner directed him at the University of Virginia, where he earned a Ph.D. in History. Prehn is an authority on the educator William Augustus Muhlenberg (1796-1877), whose school-making movement founded in 1828 gave rise to some of the premier “Church schools” in the United States. He is currently working on two novels and is a published poet.
