Your Message Matters (Convergence Leadership Project)

Becoming a Public Theologian for the 21st Century

Many of us were raised to think of the gospel as an evacuation plan for heaven, the church as a warehouse to store souls until they’re shipped to their final destination, and the pastor as the warehouse operator. But we are discovering a revolutionary new vision: first, of the gospel as a transformation plan - focused “on earth” rather than “in heaven”; second, of the church as a training center for contemplative spiritual activists, and third, of the pastor as a leader in God’s mission in the world. How can your preaching, leadership in worship, pastoral care, organizational planning and leadership, and personal example be transformed by this vision? That’s the focus of this eight-week intensive - for current and potential pastors, church planters, and lay leaders who want to see themselves not just as pastors of the church, but as pastors from the church, with concern for the whole world.


What is the Convergence Leadership Project?
The Convergence Leadership Project (CLP) is an online, on-demand continuing education program for clergy and laity who want to strengthen their church while preparing them for the cultural changes that impact ministry. We work together to build a church that is deeply aligned and moving forward on a path of just, joyful, generous, and regenerative Christian faith. A church that is welcoming in new people and younger generations to become spiritual activists to care for the planet, seek justice for the poor, welcome vulnerable people, and work for peace across racial, religious, political, and cultural divides. CLP provides self-guided intensives to equip and inspire you and your congregation to be long-term contributors in a vital spiritual movement taking shape around the world. CLP. Participants are eligible to receive a Certificate in Convergence Leadership with the purchase and successful completion of the full online course package. We know that today’s political and social reality needs a new kind of faith leader. The Convergence Leadership Project (CLP) trains congregational leaders, lay and ordained, as spiritual activists in a growing, multi-denominational movement of just and generous Christianity. When you join, you will be part of a growing regional and national movement of contemplative Christian activism that spans denominations and traditions.
