Welcome to the new Leading Congregations website, video series, and blog with me, Peter Bowden.

To help leaders keep pace with our rapidly changing world, I’m going digital! That’s right, I’m bringing my education work with congregations online via this new blog, video series, and on-demand courses.


What To Expect

I’ll be talking congregational growth strategies,  changing culture and technology,  trends in religion and spirituality, and more.   Today much of my work and research is focused on how faith communities across religious traditions are integrating digital culture and congregational life.  That’s the hot topic people want me to speak on most, but I’ll be sharing a wide range of content.

I work with leaders across faith traditions and a growing range of congregations, ministries, and entrepreneurial projects.  The content I share will reflect this and I hope will be of value to my growing multi-faith audience of religious leaders.

Who Am I

I’m Peter Bowden.  For years I’ve been training clergy, staff, and volunteers on a wide range of issues related to congregational life and ministry.  Since 2002 I’ve worked as an independent parish consultant and educator.  Read more.
