Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The purpose of the Pastoral Presence Programs is to encourage direct conversations between Church of the Brethren pastors and Bethany Theological Seminary. Pastors have something to contribute to the life and educational context at Bethany, and Bethany has something to provide pastors in their ongoing education and their need for a space to retreat.

For more detailed information on the programs, visit the Pastoral Presence Programs page.
