This four-week series explores various aspects of leadership and ministry from four different quadrants.

Topics for discussion include “Boundaries and Dream”, “Solitude & Compassion”, “A Metalogue—the Bible and its Meaning” and “Leadership in a Bottle”.

Registration is required. Fee is $80 for the series. Contact the Office of Continuing Education at 412-924-1345 or ConEd@testsite.pts.edu with questions. Additionally, 0.8 Continuing Education units are available.
