20 Congregations in the Eastern Synod Central Toronto Ministry Area: Working together, creating a vibrant church relevant in our communities

Risk and Resurrection: Leadership in Liminal Times

Martin Luther University College

On Tuesday and Wednesday, May 28th and 29th, pastors and lay people from the Eastern Synod are invited to join with our First Call pastors in this two-day event. Participants will be led in a series of guided conversations about:  

  • Re-envisioning Church and Leadership
  • Finding Our Way back to Resilience
  • Re-discovering Our Essence: Being Public Theologians, and
  • Where Do We Go from Here?

None of the leaders of this event, who are pastors and lay people within our synod, would claim to have “answers” to the challenges that face us as church in a changing context. However, all of them are convinced that there is sufficient wisdom to be found in the knowledge and experience of our community, that we can find answers together, that we could never discover on our own. Risk and Resurrection is an invitation to join in the conversation, as we grapple together with what it means to be church in our various contexts.    

The Dubrick Summer Institute is a registered, continuing education opportunity. This assures that participants are eligible to apply for ELCIC Continuing Education funding, meets the continuing education criteria of the CRA, and enables us to offer the program at a very reasonable cost.
