The Practicing Congregation: Ten Years Later

Andover Newton is excited to welcome our Alumni/ae and Friends this May to Spring Convocation. This is a wonderful time to gather with fellow classmates, meet new people, visit with faculty and celebrate the graduating class of 2014.

Dr. Diana Butler Bass,Our featured speaker, Dr. Diana Butler Bass, will hold two sessions on Thursday reflecting upon the events of this past decade, and the way in which they have both affirmed and challenged the insights of her book, The Practicing Congregation. 

We are looking forward to honoring this year’s Spirit of the Hill awardee, The Rev. Don Ng ’75 (Current President of American Baptist Churches USA) and celebrating President Nick Carter on his retirement with an evening of dinner and dancing on the quadrangle!
