Inaugural Remind & Renew Conference

Phillips Theological Seminary (PTS) announces its inaugural Re-Mind & Re-New Conference to be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma on January 17-18, 2012, at the PTS campus, 901 North Mingo, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74116.  The conference, formerly known as Ministers’ Week, is an educational event designed to foster the renewal of participant’s minds and spirits.

“This year, the Re-Mind & Re-New Conference is designed to focus on the renewal in Christianity and provide serious and provocative questions about the relationship between Christianity, culture, and congregations,” said PTS President, Dr. Gary Peluso-Verdend.  

Featured speakers include: Dianna Butler Bass, an independent scholar, author, blogger, and speaker on understanding religion, congregations, and American culture and author of the widely read Christianity for the Rest of Us and a much-anticipated publication in February 2012, Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Beginning of a New Spiritual Awakening; Nadia Bolz-Weber, founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, and a leading voice in the emerging church movement; Chris Haw, a participant in the new monasticism movement who is craftsman (carpentry and pottery), a blogger, and co-author of Jesus for President; and Craig Van Gelder, a professor of congregational mission at Luther Seminary and co-author of The Missional Church in Perspective: Mapping the Trends and Shaping the Conversation.

A registration fee of $90 includes the program, coffee breaks, and dinner on Tuesday evening.  The registration deadline including the Tuesday banquet is January 9, 2012. Registrations received after January 9, 2012 will be accepted, but attendance at the Tuesday banquet cannot be guaranteed.

The conference is preceded by a free webinar on November 30, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. CST. Led by Peluso-Verdend, the webinar will briefly address conference topics and introduce participants to selected writings from featured speakers.
