Reimagining Ministry Conference

“How do we think about our ministry in this time of collective trauma stemming from the coronavirus pandemic, racial injustice, economic uncertainty and rising polarization? Our world has changed in the past three years, and so has the church.

At this conference, we will give ideas and practices to help nurture resilience, compassion and hope in ourselves and our congregations by learning from Jesus’ ministry.”

Pastors & Leaders 2023 will take place in person on the campus of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary and online. Joni Sancken, Professor of Homiletics at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, will be speaking from the AMBS campus, and I’ll be speaking online from home. Please consider joining us. For details and registration, please see Pastors & Leaders 2023.
