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.
This engaging presentation is full of practical takeaways for clergy and religious lay leaders about how lessons from standup comedy can transform preaching, pastoral care, and self-care.
