This fourth webinar of the 2020 Convocation and Pastors' School, titled "Leadership and Trauma," will be led by Alma Tinoco Ruiz, a lecturer in homiletics and evangelism at Duke Divinity School and the director of the Hispanic House of Studies.

This year due to the pandemic, the annual Convocation & Pastors’ School will consist of five, one-hour webinars free of charge and designed for Christian leaders of all traditions. These webinars will be led by Duke Divinity School faculty and staff on the theme of "Christian Leadership in Turbulent Times."

Tinoco Ruiz is currently working on her Th.D. degree at the Divinity School and is the first recipient of the Lilly Endowment Inc. fellowship for Hispanic-Latino/a students in the Th.D. program in homiletics. She was awarded the Denman Fellow of the Foundation for Evangelism (FFE) in 2016, the Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE) Doctoral Fellowship in 2019, and the Hispanic Theological Initiative (HTI)/Lilly fellowship in 2020. Tinoco Ruiz is a practical theologian whose work centers on the intersection of homiletics, pastoral care, and evangelism. She is a provisional elder in the United Methodist Church.

Convocation and Pastors' School is a cooperative endeavor with the North Carolina and Western North Carolina Conferences of the United Methodist Church, The Duke Endowment, and Duke Divinity School.
