Our Events Inspire & Equip for Ministry

Pastor's Seminars

We offer educational and networking events for pastors featuring leading scholars such as Kevin Vanhoozer.

Community Events

We offer community lectures featuring popular speakers such as the late Nabil Quareshi and others. 

Inkling's Reading Groups

C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein, Owen Barfield, and others met regularly to read each other’s writings and to build friendships around the pursuit of truth. They called themselves the “Inklings,” so we host readings groups capturing the Spirit of the original Inklings. 


Our Fellows go on retreat together and then spend time each month in small groups getting to know each other and building friendships as they move through the curriculum over the course of a year.

A Selection of Past Events

Pastoral Equipping Seminars: Pastors spend much of their time giving: time, knowledge, counsel, and emotional energy to those in need. Very little time is given to them ensuring they are being filled by the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Equipping Seminars focus on refreshment, discipleship training and leadership development.

Dr. Greg Ogden,  ”Transforming Discipleship”

Tish Harrison-Warren, “Liturgy of the Ordinary”

Jared Wilson, “Leading With Grace”

Dr. Ralph Wood, “The Great Divorce”

Dr. Holly Ordway, “Not God’s Type: From Atheism to Christian Faith”
