 — June 4, 20074 juin 2007

St. Andrew’s College, Saskatoon is pleased to announced that Sandra Beardsall, professor of ecumenics and church history, will offer a five-day course (for credit or audit) called “Preparing for Ecumenical Ministries,” June 4-8, 2007 (course #HA 356).

Increasing numbers of Christian communities are working in close ecumenical ways to facilitate mission and ministry, especially in areas of depopulation or other financial struggle. Many of these become formally linked as “ecumenical shared ministry” congregations or clusters. This course will explore the dynamics particular to developing and sustaining ecumenical ministry initiatives in congregational settings. It will introduce participants to the structures, theologies, and ethos of the major denominations involved, and consider issues that are unique to ecumenical relationships. Participants will identify and strengthen their gifts for these ministries, in the context of the wider discussions of contemporary ecumenism. The instructor, Professor Sandra Beardsall, has worked in and with ecumenical shared ministry congregations for fifteen years. For more information, or to register, go to or call 1-877-644-8970. Registration deadline is April 23rd.
