Faith Leaders Symposium

September 27 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Every year, the Master of Arts in Urban Leadership degree program sponsors a Faith Leaders Symposium. This year’s event will be held Wednesday, September 27th at the Third Baptist Church of Chicago. The event will feature faith leaders discussing the theme “Mastering Hybrid Ministry” and will give you a chance to learn more about the Master of Arts in Urban Leadership program at Northern. It will also serve as a catalyst event for under-funded pastors and church leaders to earn their Masters degree. We would love to have you join us. The event is free but registration is required.
