The Changing Church Webinar Series is free to all church leaders, members, and advocates. Our weekly panelists come from a variety of denominations and ministry contexts. We seek out those individuals who are creating real solutions to real challenges in their own ministry context, as well as those seasoned leaders who have a demonstrated record of ministering well over time.
|WHEN:||Thursdays 11 AM EST (approx. 40 minutes)|
|PANELISTS:||Leadership: Content Experts for each webinar|
|AUDIENCE:||Ministers in local congregations|
|WHAT:||Content will focus on responding and adapting to the practical needs of churches and ministers in the 21st Century.|
In response to the growing challenges facing Ministers and Congregations, an ecumenical collaboration of organizations that focus on church health is working together to offer practical content to help congregations be the Church in the midst of a changing world.
Does this statement resonate with you?
“I’m just so tired. I can’t seem to rest enough to get past the constant emotional and physical heaviness of the past few years. The pandemic drained my mind, body, and soul in a way I’ve never experienced. There hasn’t been a break or a time to recharge, and I don’t know how to fully lead my staff or church when my tank is on empty.”
Does this describe you, your staff, or your church leadership? If so, our October webinars are designed to give you practical tools to help refuel your tank and recharge you for a new season of leading with your foot fully on the gas.
