Elizabeth Hagan

Join us for a conversation between ’06 M.Div. alumna Rev. Elizabeth Hagan and Rev. Maberry as they discuss the unexpected pathways that a life in ministry can take. Their conversation contains advice for those who dream of using their theological training to lean into the ministerial vocation of a published author, the need for community among writers, and whether study groups might be the most fun part of the seminary experience. The book she is reading, titled Christian Minimalism, can be found here https://www.churchpublishing.org/christianminimalism

Rev. Hagan is a pastor, speaker, and author with a book forthcoming, Brave Church: Tackling Tough Topics Together, that serves as a catalyst for congregations willing to have difficult conversations with love.
