With roots dating back to 1905, Convocation is a legacy program of Bangor Theological Seminary, predecessor to The BTS Center. Today Convocation is The BTS Center’s annual conference, bringing together keynote speakers, scholars, workshop leaders, musicians and artists, and a broad group of spiritual leaders interested in exploring themes related to spiritual leadership for a climate-changed world. 
Incorporating music, the arts, and contemplative practice, recent Convocations have included a blend of in-person and online experiences, woven together to facilitate learning, nurture respite, and deepen community. We are delighted to carry on this tradition, more than a century in the making, drawing upon the enduring wisdom of the generations of leaders who have come before us while exploring today’s most urgent and compelling issues.
