The Art of Transitional Ministry - October 9–13, 2017 - Erdman Center
Leading a congregation through transition is challenging and rewarding. Whether it is a change in leadership or a changing neighborhood, it takes knowledge, skill, and spiritual strength to navigate the waters of transition in a way that allows a congregation and its leaders to thrive. The Art of Transitional Ministry offers training in the skills and understanding necessary for leading a congregation in transition. There are two week-long courses of study. Both weeks are being offered concurrently. Week One is the basic education course for pastors and congregational leaders who are serving or are considering serving in congregations that are in the midst of transition, and Week Two is for pastors and leaders serving in congregations in the midst of transitions in leadership, culture, context, and ministry.
