CTS Announces Spring 2021 Alumni Speaker Series

During 2020, Christian Theological Seminary has remained committed to engaging with our many alumni across the country. Although physically dispersed like many organizations and congregations, we have leveraged technology to stay connected. Through online events like the Alumni Speaker Series launched last May, we have been able to come together as a community and dialogue about topics pertinent to the realities of this tumultuous year. We are truly grateful for our alumni and broader CTS community who have participated and engaged with us over the past several months.

As we look towards 2021, we are excited to continue the Alumni Speaker Series. In partnership with our Alumni Engagement Taskforce, we have developed a robust group of online events focused on areas expressed as needs of our community. Themes include discussions on congregational leadership, challenges of racial reconciliation, preventing burnout and clergy renewal and the future vision of the church.

  • January 2021: The Impact of 2020: Shepherding Grieving Congregations
  • February 2021: Healing the Soul of a Nation: Is Racial Reconciliation Possible?
