Bearings magazine

Bearings is a publication of The BTS Center, a think-tank supporting 21st century ministry leadership based in Portland, ME. The magazine shares insights from 21st century ministers -- very broadly construed -- from across the United States, across Christian denominations, and sometimes outside the Christian tradition. Each monthly issue of Bearings includes features on key issues and interests in ministry today, commentary from 21st century ministry thought leaders on life at the intersection of church and world, and inspiration from poets, short-fiction writers, musicians, visual artists, and other creative types. Our contributors include folks in various aspects of congregational ministry, social justice ministers, community organizers, articulate academics, artists, writers, and others with fresh perspectives on ministry today.
