Comings and Goings is a blog written by Theology, Worship and Education Director Charles B. "Chip" Hardwick as he travels throughout the church. God is on the move out and about in the world, working to redeem all things in Jesus Christ. As we join this mission, by the power of the Spirit we see God on the move. This blog contains glimpses of how Chip finds this to be true in his comings and goings.
I was very glad to co-author with Rev. Sarah Sarchet Butter an article that appeared recently in the Presbyterian Outlook. The article is about leadership development and the ways that seminaries are working to expand the ways in which they go about this task. In particular we discuss the merits of a partnership between Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
In a recent blog post I wish that I had made more explicit my friend and colleague Rev. Sarah Sarchet Butter’s contributions to a conversation with faculty and staff from Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and to the topic of expanding leadership training beyond seminaries through the non-profit management departments of business schools.
Earlier this month I was in Chicago and met with a representative from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, an institution of the United Methodist Church, two coordinators for executive non-profit education from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, at the invitation of my long-time friend and colleague, Rev. Sarah Sarchet Butter.
