Reshaping Church Conversations is a series of virtual learning dialogues through Central Seminary’s Reshaping Church: Thriving Congregations program. This series is intended to provide a space of collective learning and reflection for pastors and congregational leaders on critical topics for the thriving of congregations during challenging times. Each conversation will be guided by scholar-practitioners in the areas of pastoral leadership, congregational transformation, adaptive leadership, and social change.
Individuals who participate in all 6 of the ReShaping Church Conversations series are eligible for .9 CEUs.
Students are encouraged to have our own opinion. We are allowed to have our own understanding. And we are trained to find sources to support that opinion.

From day one I meshed with people in my class. We developed a relationship and trust. And with my instructors…were authentic and vulnerable, and they were so welcoming.

I believe that the work Central does to keep down costs is a huge part of their faithful service to the Church. Most of us will not get rich as pastors. When we graduate from seminary without huge debt, we can more easily focus on the ministries to which we are called.
