2011 MLC Schedule

*All events hosted at Lindner Conference Center, on the campus of Northern Seminary

Thursday October 27

7:00p-9:00p – The Future of Theological Education: Presentations & Dialogue

  • Many have been aware for some time of the unfortunate disparity between seminary training and the on-the-ground challenges faced by Christian leaders and pastors who are engaging increasingly Post-Christendom contexts.  In light of this concern, this event will feature the presentation of a paper and video (created by 3DM), designed to stimulate our thinking and catalyze generative conversation.  There will be responses by David Fitch and Mike Breen among others as well as a time for all in attendance to contribute their thoughts, questions and feedback.

There is no charge to attend this event, but we would ask that you register here, so that we have an idea of how many will be joining us for the evening.
