Thursday, February 28, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at United Lutheran Seminary.

Tod Bolsinger, author of Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory, will help us reframe our leadership for the sake of the church today. Rather than seeing graphs of decline or propaganda of a hopeful church, we will acknowledge the challenge of our time and hear stories of resurrection and hope from real leaders doing the work of Christian ministry in today’s drastically changing world. Change is inevitable. But how we respond to it matters. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear and explore what vital, creative ministry in our era of rapid change can look like.

Food For Thought Conversations:

On Thursdays (Feb. 7, 14, and 21 at 1230 pm) join us for “Food for Thought,” weekly informal conversations over lunch on the book Canoeing the Mountains. Read what you can, bring a bite to eat, and enjoy the company of others on the journey. We’ll be meeting at the presbytery office.

Sponsored by Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod’s Brave New Church initiative and the Ministry and Leadership Incubator of the Presbytery of Philadelphia, this event is brought to you at the deeply discounted rate of just $10/person and is open to all pastors, elders, deacons, and lay church leaders. We hope that you will join us on Thursday, February 28, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at United Lutheran Seminary for a day that will open up entirely new journeys and possibilities for your ministry!
