Note: There will be a late fee of $100 after the deadline.
In-Person, January 31- February 2, at Luther Springs! Register now! In the bestseller, Passages, Gail Sheehy argues that life, from birth to death, is really a series of twists and turns, with each being an opportunity for creative change. There are many factors that come into play when a congregation is in transition. Whether that congregation has just received an interim pastor, 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. If you are in your first call, On Leave from Call or retired, this may be an opportunity for you. When: Tuesday, January 31, 3:00 p.m. to Thursday, February 2 noon.
