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.

KimberlyNot long ago, I was uncertain if I would be a Bethany student. My calling to ministry holds a strong commitment to the church, but has always extended beyond church doors. I am passionate about the ways God is moving within congregations, but committed also to those who seek God outside of the institutional structures. One of the primary places. I feel most fully engaged in life-giving ministry is as a spiritual director. Several years ago I completed a certification program in spiritual direction and feel deeply honored to listen with individuals, groups, and organizations about how ordinary life meets with our extraordinary God.
