"The world is changing rapidly. Events and opinions that would have been unthinkable a generation ago are commonplace today. What is more, this change lacks contours, hard edges and definitions that let us get a handle on what is happening and how we should respond. Living in this world, what one writer calls “liquid modernity,” often feels like trying to stand firm while the tide takes the sand out from under your feet. And yet this is the world in which we are called to follow our God, to raise our children, to love our neighbors, and to carry out our vocation. The aim of this seminar is to equip and to encourage parents to live faithfully, and to help their children flourish, in a world at odds with God. Specifically, we will work to trace the impact of those lies our culture tells, as well as the answering implication of God’s truth. Each seminar will include a presentation as well as time for discussion.”  - Dr. Nathan Tarr


Professor of Pastoral Theology | Director of the D.Min Program

Phoenix Seminary

When John Piper stepped down after 33 years as the lead pastor at Bethlehem Baptist Church (Minn.) in 2013, he briefly attended Tarr’s church in Knoxville. “I am thrilled that Nathan Tarr has been appointed associate professor of pastoral theology at Phoenix Seminary,” said Piper, who is also the chancellor at Bethlehem College and Seminary. “For an entire year with my wife and daughter, I sat under Nathan’s expositional preaching in Knoxville. What a rich fare it was. It was also a joy to watch him embody the injunction of 2 Timothy 2:2 as he mentored younger men: ‘What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.’ His wife, Devon, has the same heart for discipling, so they make a remarkable team. God has been good to Phoenix Seminary.”
