In March, 2016, Disciples from a few Regional Commissions on the Order of the Ministry in the Midwest met with representatives from three seminaries, Regional staffs, ministers in urban and rural settings, Bethany Fellows, Mid-America Center for Ministry, and the Executive Minister for Christian Vocations for a series of conversations about the future of the ministry. It was for some the first time to be At-the-Same-Table (hence the name of the event). The experience was so rich that we agreed it needed to be repeated and expanded.
We invite you to read about what happened and to consider being part of an expanded, streaming, conversation in 2017. We have uploaded Mp3 files of presentations and some video reflections on a private Facebook page.
