              May Ventures course to focus on faith in media culture

              The May offering from Ventures in Christian Discipleship will be “Spirituality on the Screen” to be held

              online Monday, May 2 at 6:00 p.m. Central. The course will be presented by Walt Wiltschek.

              Even while culture seems to be drifting away from organized religion according to many recent surveys,

              faith pops up all over the place in television and film and elsewhere in media culture. How are God and

              other parts of faith being portrayed? And are these intersections a good thing? Join us to dig in deeper and

              discuss together.

              Walt Wiltschek started last year as part-time district executive minister for Illinois & Wisconsin and

              currently lives in Lombard, Ill. He also does part-time chaplaincy work for Illinois Wesleyan University.

              He previously served as pastor of Easton (Md.) Church of the Brethren, campus pastor at Manchester

              University in Indiana, and editor of Messenger magazine, for which he still does some writing and

              editing. He enjoys traveling, camp ministry, puns and wordplay, and cheering for various sports teams.

              Continuing education credit is available for $10 per course. During the registration process, you will have

              the opportunity to pay for CEUs and give an optional donation to the Ventures program.
