The latest issue of the Justice & Peace Close-Up highlights the multifaceted work of Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA). In recent months, staff and volunteers have walked alongside communities struck by natural and human-made tragedy, as well as advocating for the rights of immigrants and refugees. This fall, PDA is also celebrating several milestones for its award-winning documentary film outlet, Story Ministry, showing the power of story to raise awareness and spark discussion and action.
Here are the latest offerings from the Center for Lifelong Learning. Please share with your pastors, leaders, congregations or peers.
The Center for Lifelong Learning provides church leaders with opportunities for personal and professional growth. Our peer-learning courses and programs equip church professionals and lay people to be forerunners in discipleship.
