Innovative Retooling for Religious Leaders

Even in the land of steady habits, the religious landscape is changing dramatically. New challenges are making it ever more difficult to be a religious leader. Hartford Seminary wants to hep clergy and lay religious leaders navigate these challenges.

The Seminary has lined up some of the most innovative and progressive thinkers and congregational consultants in the country to assist with this important task. In 2014, 2015 and beyond, we will offer a host of influential voices speaking to key issues in congregational dynamics and religious leadership.

Come learn from national leaders such as Larry Peers, Tony Robinson, Michael Piazza and Doug Pagitt, as well as other stimulating authors and scholars. Given the notoriety of our guest instructors, we anticipate that these courses will fill up fast.

Courses can be taken for academic credit (you might consider easing in to a Doctor of Ministry) or for audit. The audit price is $575 per course — less if you’re an alumni/ae of Hartford Seminary or meet our “special auditor” criteria.
