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.

"Determined to make it happen"

My call came to me as I was sitting at a spiritual retreat talking about women in ministry. Suddenly I just had this overwhelming feeling that I knew I was supposed to be one of those women. That event started me on a journey that has been remarkable, wonderful, challenging, and sometimes scary. But one certainty has been clear since the beginning: Bethany Theological Seminary was going to be a part of that journey. It took me six years to finish my undergraduate degree, and then I took a year to rest, but I finally made it here!
