We’ve reached a turning point where the majority of our congregations struggle to sustain full-time ordained pastoral leadership financially. In response, we’ve created a consultation model called “Designing for the New Norm” to assist these congregations and their pastors in discerning sustainable paths forward.
Over half of our PCUSA congregations consist of fewer than 100 members. The initial experience of being unable to afford full-time clergy leadership significantly impacts a church’s mindset. While some adapt, others struggle. PneuMatrix provides opportunities to concentrate on these congregations and clergy in less than full-time pastorates, exploring possibilities for doing something different together.
Customized especially for you if you are:
- Lay leaders of churches with fewer than 100 members.
- Pastors who are serving part-time pastoral calls.
- Presbytery Execs and COM Representatives seeking improved ways to support these congregations and pastors.
“Designing for the New Norm” (DNN) originated from a two-year grant initially concentrated in a single PCUSA Synod before gaining national recognition. Our website houses various tools and recorded videos showcasing innovative models freely accessible to these churches. For more personalized assistance, we provide individual and cohort-based program services to address your church’s specific needs deeply.
