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.
