New Sustaining Pastoral Excellence Cohorts

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership, jointly funded by the Church of the Brethren and Bethany Theological Seminary, is offering a new series of Lilly Endowment Inc. funded educational experiences for Church of the Brethren pastors. New cohort groups will be started in August 2010 (Advanced Foundations for Church Leaders) and September 2010 (Vital Pastor). While open to all ordained pastors who have not previously participated in the Sustaining Pastoral Excellence program, special invitations will be extended to pastors who have served congregations 2-10 years.

"Surrounding myself with those that Jesus would"

I have felt the call for years. It's been the most silently real yet consistent and palpable sensations of my soul. When I first experienced Jesus as an adult, I understood him differently than I do today. I heard him call me to be active in the church to bring more into the physical structures and religious strictures of Christendom. I worked in a Christian bookstore, I went to charismatic revivals, and I proselytized by going out into the world (and sometimes invited that world into my home to critique, to challenge, and to condemn).
