Ministerial Leadership in the Age of Diversity: The Challenge and Promise in Practical Theology

In any era of change, familiar patterns of leadership become ineffective, and we are called to reimagine our roles outside of traditional frameworks. Instead of rejecting what feels like chaos, the methods of practical theology can help us explore the concept of “chaordic ministry,” through which we can lean into a mix of chaos and order—of challenge and promise. At Colloquium we will explore and imagine new strategies for graced success in our pastoral ministry.
