Karl Barth Pastor's Conference: "Karl Barth and the Mission of the Church" June 24-26, 2015

A note from Kait Dugan, the excellent curator of the Barth Collection at the Center for Barth Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary. Just FYI, I have already registered for both the academic Barth conference AND the Barth Pastor's Conference, so I hope to see you there. Here's the note:
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
I am pleased to announce the first-ever Barth Pastors conference entitled "Karl Barth and the Mission of the Church" on June 24-26th. Registration is now open! I'm attaching the graphic announcement for the conference in hopes that you will forward it to any pastors you think might be interested in attending. If you have a blog, please spread the word online as well. All information for the Pastors conference can be found at 
I will list it here for you:
What: 2015 Barth Pastors Conference -- "Karl Barth and the Mission of the Church"
When: June 24-26, 2015
Where: Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, NJ
The 2015 annual Barth conference entitled "Karl Barth and the Gospels" will take place on June 21-24 preceding the pastors conference ( If pastors or anyone else sign up for both events, they will receive a $50 discount on their registration.
I will be sending out more information about the 2015 annual Barth conference along with a graphic next month including information about the second-annual call for papers.
I would encourage pastors to sign up soon for this event since there is limited inexpensive lodging available on the Princeton Seminary campus at the Erdman Center. We sold out last year and I assume we will do so again soon this year.  I am sending this information out now to give pastors ample time to plan.
Thank you, Kait! And thank you to all those who are making this first (hopefully "annual") Barth Pastor's Conference a reality.
