Special Guest Speaker for Adult Forum: January 10

Author Loren B. Mead to Lead January 10 Adult Forum

Navigating the treacherous waters of congregational and cultural change can be daunting, but knowing that others have come safely through those waters before can make the journey less unsettling. As founder and president of The Alban Institute, Loren Mead helped hundreds of churches steer around the shoals and whirlpools. In his latest book, The Parish Is The Issue, he reflects on what he learned over five decades of ministry and leadership and offers inspiration for a new generation of leaders seeking to create change.

Rev. Mead served as a rector in South Carolina and North Carolina before agreeing to direct Project Test Pattern, a national initiative of the Episcopal Church in 1969. The Alban Institute, which he founded in 1974, grew out of this work. He was president of the Institute until 1994. After leaving, he wrote a series of books on The Once and Future Church and was a popular speaker and consultant. He still consults with parishes. He is an associate at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Washington, DC.
