Registration is now open for the 2013 Convocation & Pastors’ School: Renewing the Church. 

Vibrant Christian communities take many forms. But at the heart of each are imaginative people shaped by Scripture, working together to cultivate spaces where God’s spirit can take root and where we can fulfill our created purpose. Join James K.A. Smith, Jorge Acevedo, Laceye Warner, and Jeremy Troxler as they lead us to look beyond narratives of declining attendance, anemic giving, and social controversy to explore how thriving Christian communities are meeting the deep needs of the world and in the process, breathing new life into the church.

The annual Convocation & Pastors’ School is an intensive two-day conference that offers lectures, worship, and seminars for Christian leaders of all traditions. Led by scholars and practitioners from Duke and beyond, this event is a cooperative endeavor with the North Carolina and Western North Carolina Conferences of the United Methodist Church and The Duke Endowment. The convocation also includes alumni gatherings. Pastors and laity of churches eligible for grants from The Duke Endowment may attend at a reduced rate.
