Idea to Action Series

At Huntington University


The Idea to Action Series enables United Brethren pastors, ministry staff, and laypersons to learn about and discuss practical ministry. The purpose is to:

  • Provide theologically informed ministry perspectives
  • Provide a consistent source of quality continuing education credits
  • Provide opportunities for Huntington University ministry students and alumni to interact with local and regional ministry practitioners

Each symposium is free for United Brethren pastors, staff, and members. Huntington University undergraduate and graduate ministry students are also free to attend. Others who wish to join are welcome but will be charged a fee.

What: Each symposium will include an academic lecture, an interview with an exemplary practitioner, and a Q&A with a practitioner model.

When: Twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring, from 9:00 a.m. (registration) to 1:00 p.m.

Where: Attend the event live on Huntington University’s campus, or watch the live-streamed event at regional sites throughout the United Brethren denomination.

For those affiliated with Huntington University or the United Brethren Church, please contact Cathy Reich at (260) 356-2312, ext. 311. The general public can register online.
