Who We Are
By registration; What is current research telling us about how clergy are cared for in the United States and Canada and what they need to survive and thrive in ministry? Join Helen Blier as she hosts a conversation with Thad Austin about what they’ve learned from the Caring for Clergy research project and how these findings can inform lifelong learning for ministry in theological schools.
"Clergy Well-Being: 5 Things Lifelong Learning Leaders Need to Know" is open to all leaders at ATS member schools. The webinar is being hosted by the ATS Pathways for Tomorrow Coordination Program.
