Thinking Deeply, Ministering Intentionally 

Introducing the Idea to Action Series, a chance for United Brethren pastors, ministry staff, and laypersons to gather together to learn about and discuss practical ministry.

Each symposium in the Idea to Action Series is free for United Brethren pastors, staff, and members to attend. Huntington University undergraduate and graduate ministry students are also free to attend. Others who wish to join are welcome but will be charged a fee.

What: Each symposium will include an academic lecture, an interview with an exemplary practitioner, and a Q&A with a practitioner model.

  • Provide opportunities for Huntington University ministry students and alumni to interact with local and regional ministry practitioners
