Associate dean and professor, Western Theological Seminary
The Rev. Theresa F. Latini is associate dean of diversity and cultural competency and professor of practical theology and pastoral care at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan. An ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), she is the author of “The Church and the Crisis of Community: A Practical Theology of Small-Group Ministry” (Eerdmans, 2011) and co-author of “Transforming Church Conflict: Compassionate Leadership in Action” (Westminster John Knox, 2013).
A free toolkit from the “Shifting Ground” initiative, “Let’s Talk About Resources” uses case studies, games and reflective discussion questions to facilitate creative conversations about how congregations can use their resources in service to their local community.
It can be used online or in person. These resources were co-created by Lake Institute on Faith & Giving and the innovative design team at RootedGood.
