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.
