The Symposium

November 15, 20178:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Evangelical Seminary
121 South College Street
Myerstown, PA 17067-1299

Sometimes while ministering in a broken and complex world, we find ourselves needing a boost. Proverbs advises us, “Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed” (Proverbs 11:25).

The Symposium is an opportunity to be refreshed by our gifted and insightful alumni—to reinvigorate your mind, impassion your heart, and re-center your actions on Christ.

Attendees can select from multiple TED-style presentations (20-minutes each) on a variety of practical disciplines, such as pastoral ministry, personal development, spiritual formation, therapy, and organizational theory. Some of the topics include:

•  Leadership and Resilience

•  Can “People Pleasers” Set Boundaries?

•  Caring for the “Soul-Weary” During Chaotic Times 

•  Experiment or Die! Transforming the Culture of a Smaller Church 

•  The Desirable Heft of Being: Rescuing Identity from the Chains of Activity

•  Beauty in Brokenness: Kintsugi and the Art of Trauma Therapy

•  More than Just a Transcript: Turning Your Preaching or Speaking into Writing 

•  Cultivating Stillness—Reclaiming Our Christian Contemplative Heritage

Reserve your spot for Wednesday, November 15, 2017, at Evangelical Seminary’s main campus in Myerstown.
