Pastors Week is an annual event devoted to providing resources in ministry, biblical studies and/or theology for pastors and other church leaders. It's a week rich with worship, inspiring presentations, networking and renewal for those who devote their time to serving their congregations.
Help us see Jesus!
Help us see, Jesus!
January 27–30, 2014
Increasingly the church in North America reflects the fractured, divisive nature of out culture. Instead of healthy conversation among sisters and brothers, we often hear labeling, finger pointing and name calling. Instead of communities of discernment, the church is often divided into camps that reflect particular ideologies.
Pastors Week presenters believe that helping the congregation to focus on Jesus is one essential leadership task in these times. And they contend that diverse points of view make the picture of Jesus clearer. They encourage us to ask, “What in the ‘Other’ might help us to recognize Jesus in places we haven’t looked?” Five AMBS professors will show how different lenses can, by the power of the Holy Spirit, help us to see Jesus.
