Church Leadership Center Webinars
The Church Leadership Center offers webinars that feature worship resources and insights into pastoral care, theology and ministry. These online learning events offer a wide range of resource sessions that both complement and expand on the topics explored in on-campus workshops. If you would like to test out the webinar environment before an event, email the Church Leadership Center at least five days in advance to schedule a private tutorial.
Connecting to a webinar
Connecting to a webinar requires at minimum a computer with reliable, high-speed internet access, and computer speakers or a telephone. Our webinars work best when the participant joins by computer audio and wears a headset. This is not mandatory, but doing so helps to eliminate feedback and distortions. A computer microphone (or headset) and/or a telephone with speakerphone capabilities can also be helpful. After registering online, participants receive an e-mail message prior to the start of the webinar with a Web link and password to access the webinar.
Discerning the Powers

Presenter: Jamie Pitts, Ph.D.
+ Read Discerning the Powers description
We will discuss the theology of the principalities and powers in light of its biblical roots and contemporary theological treatment in the work of Berkhof, Yoder, Wink and others. Going beyond these recent thinkers, we will examine "powers theology" as a practical theology for the church's mission. We will also look at possibilities for a reconciliation between socio-political and spiritual understandings of the powers

Group participation policy
Our webinars work best when participants join by computer audio and wear a headset. For this reason, it may be difficult for multiple people participating around one computer to have a satisfactory experience. While we don’t wish to discourage participation by multiple people, the Church Leadership Center will not be held responsible for any audio or video problems that may result. Please review the group participation policy before registering.
What to expect
A webinar is first and foremost a chance to hear, in real time, a speaker present his or her thoughts on a given topic. In addition to listening, there are usually opportunities to ask questions, send chat messages, or make comments directly to the speaker. However, a webinar is not a videoconference.
