Inside Perkins offers the opportunity for prospective students in Houston, Galveston, and surrounding areas—including those who are interested in beginning their theological education while continuing to live and work in their current locales—to meet faculty, interact with current students, and learn about admissions and financial aid.

Following the meal, the event will include conversation and Q&A time with Dean Lawrence and other Perkins representatives.  Inside Perkins participants may then attend one of two classes taught by Perkins School of Theology professors:  The Christian Heritage II with Dr. Carlos F. Cardoza-Orlandi, Professor of Global Christianities and Mission Studies;  or Interpretation of the Christian Message II with Dr. William J. Abraham, Albert Cook Outler Professor of Wesley Studies.
