Living Into and Out of Our Book of Faith

A congregational leadership training series for Book of Faith and mission conversations

A series of three seminars to be held March 16, May 11, and June 15 ~ 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Culture shifts take time... and energy. Congregational leaders who want to shift the culture of their congregation toward deeper and more consistent Bible engagement are invited to gather a team of three to six leaders for participation in "Living Into and Out of Our Book of Faith," a 3-seminar, leadership training series, held this spring at Gustavus Adolphus College and First Lutheran Church, St. Peter.

This congregational series will provide helpful and basic Bible information, practical resources, and a variety of discussion tools for team settings. Seminar three will provide a basic resource for strategic mission planning that intentionally draws its inspiration from the scriptures. This series is a collaborative effort of Southwestern Minnesota Synod, Southeastern Minnesota Synod, Gustavus Adolphus College, and the Book of Faith initiative.

Course information is provided in the reproducible brochure. Please use the single-page registration form to register. Congregational costs for the full 3-seminar series are $300 per congregation (for 3-6 people) or $100 per individual. Single seminar registration is also available.
