webcastJoin us for…

  •  A Celebration of Transformation
  • Stretching New Ideas
  • A Challenge to your Discipleship

We had significant difficulty with the limited internet connection in Salina, Kansas.  We did the best we could within the limitations we encountered, but we know that the quality of the webcast suffered occasionally. Thank you for your patience.

A collaboration of Bethany Theological Seminary's Electronic Communications and the Church of the Brethren Transforming Practices, Congregational Life Ministries, make it possible for sessions of the Western Plains Gathering V available to be viewed over the internet.

The Gathering, held October 23-25, 2009, at the Webster Conference Center, Salina, Kansas.

Master of Divinity '07

BrianSometimes it takes looking back to see God's leading in life. I graduated from Bethany in May 2007 and realized that God led my entire theological training. In the summer of 2002, however, it was a little tougher to see where it was going.

I realized my call to full-time ministry and knew it was to journey into the educational training part of my call. My campus pastor and I had several conversations about this next step. I fasted and prayed and sought the Lord but had no clear answer by the end of the fast. As I was preparing to break my fast, the Lord asked me, "What is the desire of your heart?" I replied, "Oral Roberts University."
