This workshop will take up the question of the clergy shortage so many have described and consider how seminaries are working to lift up leaders for today's church. It will be useful for diocesan leaders involved in discernment for ordination as well as parish leaders serving on search committees. We'll begin by exploring the challenges of deployment today, pulling from recent articles laying out a clergy shortage in the church. Next, we'll examine some of the challenges seminarians face and consider how seminaries are working to address these barriers. Finally, we'll work together on steps parishes, dioceses and seminaries can take to help address the need for clergy.
