The Pastor's Study: Tempered Resilience


January 27 - March 24

We would like to invite pastors, church staff, and chaplains to join us in The Pastor’s Study for a discussion of the book Tempered Resilience: How Leaders are Formed in the Crucible of Change by Tod Bolsinger. We will gather for five sessions every two weeks beginning January 27 from 3-4pm Eastern Time via Zoom. The American Baptist Churches of Nebraska is hosting this event and welcomes the participation of ABCOPAD church leaders.

We will guide you through 5 conversations around the themes of the book. Additionally, we will send emails that will include links to resources and dialogue starters to guide reflection from the book to supplement your reading.

Additionally, on February 24, we will host author Tod Bolsinger at 11:30am EST for a one-hour conversation in addition to our scheduled afternoon book discussion.

We hope this experience will provide needed pastoral community connection. Start 2022 by stretching your leadership imagination, temper your pastoral skills, and deepen your personal faith.
