During July and August, we invited everyone to join us for three delightful and meaningful online gatherings that drew upon various forms of artistic expression to expand our spiritual imagination as we envision an earth-honoring future.
In this time of social distancing, fear, and great uncertainty, faith communities are more important than ever, but let's be honest: this current Coronavirus crisis stresses and stretches faith leaders in unique ways. The BTS Center is teaming up with the podcast Reports from the Spiritual Frontier to release a podcast series, some online meet-ups, and other resources to support and equip faith leaders for this particular moment.

The BTS Center is a think tank and incubator for 21st-century ministry. We create and support educational events, projects, and research inquiries in the fields of religion, spirituality, practical theology, and ministry.
We are a non-profit charitable organization in Maine, carrying on the historic, chartered mission of Bangor Theological Seminary (est. 1814). We seek to be generous stewards of our legacy, re-framing our purpose of preparing faith leaders for ministry in a 21st-century, digitally-integrated, multi-faith world.
There is a great need for innovative vocational development for faith leaders in a world evolving right before our eyes, in ways not always welcome and at a breathtaking pace.
We believe The BTS Center is uniquely positioned and equipped to be a progressive spiritual, intellectual, and practical partner with others to encourage, support, and empower individuals and their communities as agents of change who embody God's mercy, reconciliation, and justice for all people and all of creation.
