Register today for 2013 Convocation: Worship in a Time of Change

The church is entering a new era marked by seemingly unending crisis and change: Economic upheaval. Political instability and war. Cultural polarization. Technological innovation. Increasing pluralism and secularism. Ecological extremes. Congregations struggle with the impact of these trends, wondering:

How do we worship God faithfully in a time when the world is in constant flux? What traditions and theological understandings are bedrock? How do we build from these foundations in innovative ways in order to reach out to people yearning for hope? What do concrete stories of faithful innovation in worship and Christian community look like?

Come to Mid-Winter Convocation Feb. 5-7 to think out loud about how to be a bold and faithful Christian leader in today's changing world. Through stimulating presentations, practical workshops and inspiring worship, you'll gain the concepts and skills to navigate the untrodden paths of the 21st century church so you can continue to lead worship "in spirit and in truth" wherever God has planted you.

Keynote speakers:

  • Dirk Lange, Associate Professor of Worship, Luther Seminary 
  • Chris Trimble, Adjunct Associate Professor of Business Administration and Executive Director of the Center for Global Leadership, Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth College
