Session 5: “Preparing Leaders for Exile & Pilgrimage - Formation for Ministers & Laity”


Presenter: Gordon Smith

Gordon Smith, President of Ambrose University and Seminary and Professor of Systematic and Spiritual Theology, discourses the implications the metaphor for exile has for the way we form leadership for our church today, for congregations, assuming congregations are crucial to God's capacity to achieve His purposes in our society for such a time as this in a secularist time. He poses that exile could be providential.
