2015 SPT Annual Study Conference
Theme: “Practicing Public Pastoral Theologies in Contexts of Difference”
Dates: June 18-20, 2015
Place: Renaissance in Denver, Colorado
The 2015 study conference of the Society for Pastoral Theology will explore the challenges of being public pastoral theologians while attending to race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexual, generational, and religious/theological differences. Plenary speakers will address these themes broadly, and a panel will take them up in various professional contexts and practices including pastoral counseling, parish ministry, seminary/divinity school teaching, chaplaincy, and non-profit leadership. There will be ample time for conference attendees to explore their own particular challenges experienced in their primary professional contexts.
