This training is based on the principles developed by Russell Crabtree in Transition Apparitions: Why Much of What We Know about Pastoral Transitions Is Wrong. Crabtree uses an evidence-based approach that shows a one-size-fits-all approach ignores the uniqueness of each congregation.

Outdated models teach: Only S.T.E.P.™ provides:
·         More theory and less practical.

·         Cookie-cutter approaches.

·         Grief is the primary emotion in all transitions.


·         A practical approach based on systems theory.

·         How to perform systems assessments in any setting.

·         How to address the anxiety that happens in every ministry transition.

·         Follow up coaching for participants.

Cost: $1,500.  Includes twenty-four hours of training and lunch every day.
