This fall, Candler’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations will continue last year’s successful Office Hours program, a webinar series designed to connect alumni to Candler faculty.

Office Hours: Practical Ministry Webinars are free, one-hour online conversations with Candler faculty members that are designed to provide new tools for use in your work and ministry. Participants view a live presentation, ask questions, and engage in dialogue with faculty members. Registration for each webinar is required; once registered, participants will receive an email with information about how to join the webinar via the GoToWebinar platform.
