This workshop is part of the ReShaping Church Conversations series, 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. Continuing Education Units are available for participation in all six Reshaping Church Conversations. Plan to attend any of the following or all six to earn CEUs.
