This is a 3-part series where participants may choose to participate in one, two or all three sessions.

The first session will explore the birth and growth of religious education as a profession.

The second session will explore the religious educator and its relationship with authority.

The third session will take a peek into what the future holds for religious education as a profession.

Facilitated by Michele Grove, D. Min.  Michele is a religious educator who began her career in 1988 as a youth and young adult coordinator.  She received her Doctor of Ministry in May 2019 from Wesley Theological Seminary’s Cambridge Program entitled, “Creative Ministry for Church Renewal in a Changing World.”  Her project thesis focused on transitional religious education and its role in the twenty-first-century church.
