 Alban at Duke Divinity School


Alban at Duke Divinity School helps leaders connect and learn from one another by sharing practical wisdom, stories of thriving congregations and transformational models of ministry. Through our work with congregations and the networks that support them, we have observed three trends:
•Congregations are hungry to learn what is effective in other congregations and learn best from each other, but they have limited opportunities to do so.
•Denominational and thought leaders address issues that impact congregations, but they often work in isolation from each other.
•All leaders need ready access to innovative ideas and practical resources.

Alban is uniquely positioned to respond to these trends, offering ready access to books, online publications, and learning opportunities.
