We are pleased to welcome Prof. Louise Kretzschmar to IBTSC Amsterdam this week. Prof. L Kretzschmar3jpg (1)

Prof Kretzschmar is currently a Professor of Theological Ethics at the University of South Africa (Unisa). Her research interests are in: Christian Ethics, Christian Spirituality, Christian leadership, moral formation, spiritual formation, Baptist studies, Feminist Theology and Ethics, Business Ethics, Leadership within an African Context.

During her visit she will meet with the Rector at IBTSC and the Dutch Baptist Seminary. She will also deliver a short talk  on issues of “moral and spiritual leadership in church, society, and state” at a Departmental meeting of the Vrije Universiteit on Thursday and give a lecture on ‘The education of prospective ministers as an invitation to life: a process of moral formation’ to the staff at Baptist House on Friday.
