The Leadership Forum takes place on Thursday, March 23 (10 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.) to kickoff Annual Gathering 2023. This is a professional/spiritual development event for clergy and laity that coincides with Annual Gathering each year. This year, the Leadership Forum features Kristin Kobes Du Mez, historian, writer and speaker. Cost is $30 to attend, which includes a boxed lunch.
North American congregations have not escaped the polarizing effects of the social and political environment of recent decades. At their best, churches can provide models of community where differences are embraced in light of shared values and beliefs. At their worst, churches can reflect the larger culture, contributing to conflict and division.
How do our political and social commitments shape our understanding of Jesus? How does our conception of Jesus challenge or reinforce our beliefs? Which Jesus do we follow? Join others who seek to navigate this polarization by exploring these questions at the 2023 CBFNC Leadership Forum that kicks off our Annual Gathering.
