About this event

PostureShift Follow-Up

Many pastors attended PostureShift on September 28-29, whether in person or online. There was a tremendous amount of learning. How a church or leader might incorporate that learning into the rhythm of ministry might be obvious, but it might be full of questions, landmines or concerns. Nuts & Bolts on October 20 will help you process these dynamics. If you are a pastor who has processed and are feeling good about the incorporation of the PostureShift content, we need you to participate even more! One critical factor to the success of Nuts & Bolts is that we learn from each other.

Together, we will navigate what we took away from PostureShift. We will address the potential landmines that are in front of you. And we’ll look at what next steps are possible and necessary for your church.

If you haven’t attended PostureShift, that’s ok! We will provide a small piece of content catch up. However, if you’re planning to attend Nuts & Bolts and haven’t participated in PostureShift, we have one thing to ask. Please come with a posture of learning. Be open and available to what your colleagues might teach.

Vaccinated only for in-person.

For the in-person part of this hybrid event, fully vaccinated pastors only. Those who have chosen to remain unvaccinated are invited to join on ZOOM. We know that there will be a number of people online. Reasons are varied, from travel distance to ease of schedule.

There is a lot of tension and dread that pops up with the consideration to have a Christian event that excludes those you have chosen to remain unvaccinated. It simply feels wrong. If you disagree with this decision, we get it. This decision might exclude someone who is at risk of marginalization. And the alternative decision will exclude someone else. So, who do we exclude? This is a choice without an easy answer. It’s not something that we like or want to get used to. Thank you for your understanding and grace if understanding is elusive.

What to expect when you arrive at Westwood.

Please have your proof of vaccination and government issued ID ready. Honor system is not acceptable here. Even though we know each other we are going to choose to follow the steps of verification. Thank you for your patience.

In-person participants will need to wear masks. You can remove your mask to eat or drink.
