Conferences and Events

Being a valuable resource for today’s Church and community is part of the Northeastern Seminary mission. That’s why we host conferences and symposiums designed to meet the needs of the faith communityto respond to the challenges we face in ministry. Each event is constructed to stimulate thinking, prompt reflection, and incite transformation as we share in God’s mission.

Created for both leaders and laity, these enrichment events feature nationally renowned speakers and cover a broad spectrum of timely, substantive topics in the fields of ministry, theology, scripture, and spiritual formation.
