Theological education is changing rapidly. As schools and congregations adapt to these changes they are turning to the work of lifelong learning as a strategy to engage the continual – and lifelong – work that is leadership formation in ministry. The triumphs and challenges of this work are deeply familiar for ALLLM members. This spring and fall, ALLLM will host four membership events with thought leaders in the field of theological education. These conversations will address the challenges facing theological education today and the unique opportunities afforded through lifelong learning programs and the work of continuing education for the broader field. Theological Education Between the Times: A lifelong Learning Conversation will bring ALLLM membership together with authors of the Theological Education Between the Times book series, which comes out of a project of Candler School of Theology funded by Lilly Endowment Inc. and based at Emory’s Candler School of Theology. The project convenes diverse bodies of people for reflection on the meanings and purposes of theological education.
