Talking Points

Talking Points is an ongoing conversation about theology, culture and vocation. We host conferences, seminars and a blog to engage topics relevant for pastors, counselors and ministry leaders. We are committed to providing these opportunities for growth and development to equip leaders to serve in their unique contexts, all in service to the mission of our Lord and His kingdom.

Conference and Virtual Events

Research shows there are certain keys to cultivating a sustainable, sacrificial yet fulfilling ministry. Engage that research and hear from those who are walking the road themselves. If you’re in pastoral or ministry leadership, the church needs you to be healthy. We invite you to explore the Resilience series of recordings and consider implementing the Resilience Curriculum studies in your context.

Everyday Works Curriculum

Many followers of Jesus struggle to see their work in this way—as a place of worship and mission for the kingdom of God. It’s time to change that. It’s time to rethink what you do every day and why it matters … for the kingdom.


We regularly publish content for pastors, counselors and ministry leaders, and we invite you to join the conversation.
