PINNE Symposium 2023

June 12, 2023
from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM

This one-day symposium hosted by Hartford International University and the Hartford Institute for Religion Research will bring together clergy, congregational, and judicatory leaders to explore innovative ministry responses coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Rev. Darrell L. Goodwin, Executive Conference Ministry of the Southern New England Conference of the UCC, will be the keynote speaker. The day includes dynamic breakout workshops led by Pastoral Innovation Network of New England clergy to explore topics such as engaging community organizing, partnering with other congregations, community arts + ministry, and reimagining the professional pastor.

For the past two years, these presenters have been gathering regularly and will share their creative efforts and learnings addressing the contexts of ministry across New England. The Hartford Institute for Religion Research will also present the not-yet-released, Spring 2023 survey results from the "Exploring the Pandemic Impact on Congregations" project (www.covidreligionresearch.org). 

If you are a pastor, a lay leader or volunteer at your local congregation, or a denominational leader in New England, this event is for you!

The symposium is held at the Lyceum Resource + Conference Center, located at 227 Lawrence Street, Hartford, CT 06106. Free parking is available. Due to generous funding from Lilly Endowment, conference attendance is free and includes lunch catered from Fire by Forge.
