   April 10, 2018 | Pastors' Forum: Church Revitalization

With Dr. James Singleton and Caitlin Schuman

Rescheduled from March 13 due to snow storm.

In the Summer of 2017, the Barna Group, along with Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Vision New England, with major support from the Day Foundation, sponsored a large quantitative and qualitative study of the Christian faith in New England. The Shoemaker Center for Church Renewal invites you to come hear Caitlin Schuman, researcher from the Barna Group and Dr. James Singleton, Associate Professor of Pastoral Leadership and Evangelism, unpack what was in the study and begin to imagine how this study could inform the outreach and discipleship within your congregation. The afternoon session will include group discussions on the implication of the study for evangelistic strategy and vision.

Location: Gordon-Conwell Hamilton Campus
