manus2Doing theological work?  Interested in scholarly discussion and dialogue?  Want to pursue some cutting edge ideas in contemporary church and culture with others of like mind?

Consider joining the Northwest Association for Theological Discussion

NWATD members participate in an annual two day meeting (Monday evening to Wednesday morning) focused around four presentations led by members of the association.  Presentations bring theological reflection to bear on varied subjects, such  as art, culture, worship, pastoral practice, interfaith relations, politics, mission, economics, race relations, ecumenism, or  denominational identity,  Participation is open to pastors, teachers or other church professionals in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) or in denominations with which the Disciples have ecumenical partnerships or conversations.  NWATD’s geographic area is contiguous with the Oregon/Southwest Idaho and Northern Sky regions of the Christian Church (i.e., Oregon, Washington, N. and S.W.Idaho,  Alaska). Membership includes an expectation that the member will produce and lead one presentation in a three year period.  Dues are $25/year, a portion of which goes into a travel pool for members traveling some distance to the meeting.  Lodging and meals for the 2019 meeting were $175 for two nights and five meals.

Membership openings for the 2020-2023 triennium are now available.  If you are interested, contact NWATD membership chair Alicia Speidel (  Applications must be submitted by January 31, 2020.
