Expanding Pastoral Imagination For Flourishing Communities
The Wabash Pastoral Leadership Program affirms the high calling of early career Indiana pastors by forming two-year peer learning cohorts anchored in rich dialogue with civic leaders.
What is the WPLP?
The Wabash Pastoral Leadership Program exists to affirm the high calling of Indiana pastors and to expand pastoral imagination.
We do this by forming two-year peer learning cohorts anchored in rich dialogue with civic leaders.
Pastors reflect theologically and adaptively on pressing social issues, convening important conversations for the public good of Indiana and seeking the fulfillment of the reign of God.
Are You an Early Career Pastor?
Are you an early-career pastor who is ready to reflect theologically and engage on pressing issues related to community well-being in Indiana?
WPLP Participants-past and present-embody a rich depth of knowledge and experience. Here, we've gathered their reflections on some of the pressing social issues covered during campus sessions, the changes they are facilitating within their communities, and their experiences in the program.
The program has encouraged and strengthened me as a pastoral leader and increased my confidence level in doing this important work. Within my congregation I feel that I now ask better questions, listen more deeply beneath the surface, encourage theological reflection more frequently, and engage community issues more creatively.
