A Day to Address the Needs of Today's Church

Transformative Leadership, Women’s Issues and the Media
What’s for the Youth in the 21st Century Church?
The nuts and bolts of community organizing

The Alumni/ae and Church Relations Department of New York Theological Seminary is pleased to present an exciting program on The Church in the 21st Century: Transformative Leadership Shaping the Future, on May 14, 2010.

The day will begin with worship, with a sermon by Keith Russell and the music provided by Darren Ferguson.

Exploring the theme will be a team of experts led by Katharine Henderson, President of Auburn Seminary. A panel composed of Mercy Amba Oduyoye, Kofi Opoku, Lester Ruiz, Daniel Meeter, and Allison Davis will discuss transformative leadership, women in the Church, challenges facing the Church, and media in the 21st Century Church.

At the Rising Star Awards Luncheon, we will honor two alums who have made tremendous strives in the five years since graduating: Cecilia Loving and Alfred Correa.

An afternoon panel led by Alfonso Wyatt will discuss What’s for the Youth in the 21st Century Church? Panelists are: Darren Ferguson, Diane Carter, and Alfred Correa.

Peter Heltzel, of the newly formed Micah Institute, will present a training session on the nuts and bolts of community organizing, with Ava Farkas, Liz Theoharis, and Chloe Breyer.

We are looking forward to having alumni/ae and friends join us for this informative and stimulating day. The cost for the program is $35, which includes a continental breakfast and lunch. Two Continuing Education units are offered for an additional $25.
