Conferences and Programs

Along with the many other resources the Shoemaker Center for Church Renewal makes available, conferences and events are a major part of our center. We strive to make the educational resources of Gordon-Conwell and the larger evangelical community available to pastors, lay leaders and churches for the purpose of encouraging personal and corporate renewal.


Pastors' Forums are one-day seminars that provide inspiration and instruction to pastors on a variety of topics each fall and spring.

The Brown Bag Sabbatical gives you an opportunity to join other pastors for a week-long study leave.

The Baraca Philathea/Marshall Hudson Endowment supports the development of Christian leaders through scholarship and programs.

D.Min. Writing Programs provide students with intensive help on their thesis projects twice a year.
