Engage with pastor Mandy Smith as she comes to Harrisonburg for a series of chapels, forums and lectures on “Being Human in Ministry,” September 19-20, 2017.
Originally from Australia, Mandy Smith is lead pastor of University Christian Church, a campus and neighborhood congregation with its own fair-trade café in Cincinnati, Ohio. She is a contributing editor for Leadership Journal and the author of Making a Mess and Meeting God. Her latest book is The Vulnerable Pastor: How Human Limitations Empower Our Ministry (IVP). Mandy and her husband Jamie, a New Testament professor at Cincinnati Christian University, live with their two kids in a little house where the teapot is always warm. She is also a fine artist and the creator of “The Collect,” a citywide trash-to-art project.
Mandy Smith’s books will be available for purchase at the events.
