An opportunity to read and discuss influential ministry texts in community online.
About this event
This event is brought to you by the department of Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary
There are many texts related to ministry that can challenge and make us better. It can be difficult to prioritize reading these books with all the other demands on our plate. Lifelong Learning is offering the opportunity to read and work through these four important texts over the next year online via Zoom meeting. Participants can sign up for one or more of the reading groups to provide the space for intentional conversation to work through these. Note that you save $18 if you purchase all of the remaining three at once!
