Community Education at BA

Brentwood Academy's Engage series is a community education program that features speakers from around our area and across the country. Our purpose is to offer meaningful conversation on issues relevant to our culture and community, especially those affecting our children.

Engage is for everyone and offered at no cost to the community. Our hope is to bring together people of all ages, cultures, and demographics so that we can learn from one another while hearing from experts in their areas of interest.

He has degrees from some of the most respected colleges and seminaries. He's written some of the best-selling books of the past decade and appeared on thousands of radio and television programs across the country. But Dr. Gary Chapman knows more than just a lot of scholarly theories and practical advice—he knows people. He knows how to relate to people, how to have fun and how to make people laugh.

What does that mean for you? As a conference participant, you will have the benefit of one of the most experienced and educated biblical counselors teaching in a fun seminar setting where you'll laugh as much as you learn.

Chapman is a well-known marriage counselor and director of marriage seminars. He hosts a nationally syndicated radio program, A Love Language Minute, and a Saturday morning program, Building Relationships with Dr. Gary Chapman, that air on more than 400 stations.

The 5 Love Languages, one of Chapman’s most popular titles, topped various bestseller charts for years. It has been published in 50 languages, sold more than ten million copies and is currently on the New York Times best-seller list. 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of The 5 Love Languages book. Chapman has been directly involved in real-life family counseling for more than 35 years. Dr. Chapman also serves as senior associate pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
