The Transition Process Checklist is a discernment tool for helping the congregation to determine its readiness to begin the call process. It includes a form that needs to be completed and returned to both the dean and the assistant to the bishop assigned to the congregation. Locate your conference dean.
Transition Training, Jan. 29-31, 2018
Registration is now open for the Transition Ministry Training January 29-31 at Luther Springs.
There are many factors that come into play when a congregation is in transition. Whether that congregation has just received an interim pastor, or has just received a newly called pastor, or is seeking new direction into God’s future, it is a time of transition from something that was to something that is yet to be. The Transition Training event will help attendees focus on what it is that properly motivates ministry so that the “yet to be” is fully in the hands of God, and God’s people are themselves renewed and ready for the ministry.
Who should attend: Interim Pastors, First Call and New Call Pastors and pastors in congregations needing new direction.
