Pinnacle Network Partners Monthly Conversation
October 3- 1PM Eastern, 1 Hour

Topic:  "Holy Experiments"

Presenter:  Dr. David Brown


The first Wednesday of each month, Pinnacle Network Partners are welcomed to a video conference facilitated by a Pinnacle Associate. This month Pinnacle Associate David Brown will address these questions:  
What are Holy Experiments? How do we engage in them? How do we evaluate/learn from them?  He will also discuss his work with an emerging faith community, The Welcome Table, and how churches can create spaces for such "holy experiments."


 Network Partners also have the opportunity to ask, explore, and dialogue with the Pinnacle Associate facilitating. We look forward to the cross-pollination, best-practices sharing, and collective intelligence resulting from this opportunity. Make sure you register so that we can send you a video conference link.​​


Getting Along without Just Going Along: Being the Church in a Time of Division 

October 9--3 pm Eastern/2 pm Central

Rev. Dr. Dan Holloway

Cost:  $20

Ministry today takes place in the context of our ongoing theological and political debates. How can we act faithfully in the midst of these tensions so as to hold on to our own convictions while staying connected to those with whom we disagree? This webinar will propose new ways of thinking about the work of the church in this environment and practical steps we can take to enhance the possibilities for greater faithfulness in a time of national division.



NEW DATE:  Women and Men in Ministry Together: A Dialogue  (one hour)
October 18--10 am ET/9 am CT
Rev. Debra Griffis-Woodberry and Dr. Ircel Harrison, Presenters 
Cost:  $20     
Both women and men are called and gifted for ministry, yet the reality they face in doing ministry has different nuances.  Debra Griffis-Woodberry and Ircel Harrison will share their insights born out of decades of ministry experience.  Their dialogue will include discussion of hospitality, respect, feelings of invisibility or marginalization, cultural bias regarding attire for men and women, vulnerability, and the role of male and female mentors.  A time for participants’ comments and questions will be included.
