Week 1: Introduction to Transitional Ministry
This course is for individuals who are considering ministry in temporary settings (as an interim, transitional or designated pastor) or are experiencing ministry in these transitional times.
Materials presented will include the basics of transitional ministry and will be of value to all congregational pastors regardless of ministry setting.
During the course of this week you will be introduced to best practices in transitional ministry including ways to enter the congregation and community, to analyze the congregations strength and growing edges, to connect well, to assume responsibility for assisting the congregation in moving toward a vibrant future, and to leave the congregation in a healthy and appropriate way.
As there is advance preparation required (reading), please plan to register well in advance so that you will have adequate time to prepare.
