Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary's Faith-Rooted Community Organizing

Tuesday, January 21, 2020, 9:00 am to Saturday, January 25, 2020, 3:00 pm

Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary offers a course in Faith-Rooted Community Organizing every year. This is a required course in our MDiv curriculum, but it also open to pastors and other faith-leaders who are interested. This year the course will be offered January 21-25 at PLTS in Berkeley. This flyer includes further information about the course. 

This is a unique approach to faith-rooted community organizing taught by a team that includes Dr. Cynthia Moe-Lobeda and Dr. Ray Pickett, who provide a Biblical and Theological grounding for the practices of community organizing, and experienced leaders from the ELCA Organizing for Mission Network who have been creatively using the arts of community organizing to build a relational culture within the church and engage the larger communities in which they do ministry.

Where: Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, 2000 Center Street, Suite 200, Berkeley

Cost: $300 (includes tuition, continental breakfast, and lunch for the five-day course. Dinner and accommodations not included.)
