Putting Jesus on the Ballot: Anabaptism and American Politics with Scott Peterson

A webinar series from the Mennonite Church USA Leadership Development Team for pastors and congregational leaders

Political tensions are rising, argumentation has replaced conversation, and divisions widen. How should we, as pastors and leaders, engage? How do we avoid the pull of partisan politics in order to create space for the Spirit to work reconciliation in our midst? Over three webinars, we will explore one perspective on how Anabaptist theology can create a different paradigm for engaging government without falling into the traps of fallen systems or partisan politics.

Scott Peterson is the Leadership Pastor at Trinity Mennonite Church in Glendale, Arizona and a leadership coach for pastors. He received his MA in Theology from Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary. In his work, Scott seeks to help others maintain flexible models of ministry, integrated Anabaptist theology, and Spirit-empowered vision as central components for equipping a Jesus-centered church.

The webinar takes place in three sessions at 7pm Central time. You must register no later than the day before to receive your Zoom link to the webinar.
