The Art of Transitional Ministry – Week 1 – G200231

Workshop ID: G200231
Dates: February 16, 2020 - February 21, 2020
Price: $1,295.00 - $1,495.00

Churches in the midst of change–whether that is a change in pastoral leadership, location or culture –have unique opportunities to explore who God is calling them to be and what God is calling them to do. Often it is up to the pastor to lead a congregation through this time of change and growth, and it can be challenging to know where to start. The vast majority of churches in the PC (USA) and other mainline denominations are small and struggling to know what it means to live out the gospel in ways that invite others to follow Jesus. This course will help the participants learn to analyze the congregational context and lead a congregation through this exciting time of discovery. It will also allow participants to learn more about the work of intentional transitional/interim ministry and provide an opportunity to discern if God may be calling them to this work. This is open to clergy and lay congregational leaders of any denomination. This workshop is considered Week 1 of the Art of Transitional Ministry, and provided in partnership with the Transitional Ministry Education Consortium of the PC (USA).
