The Art of Transitional Leadership

Pastor as Transitional Leader: Week 2 Virtual Training
April 25-29, 2022

Week 2 training focuses specifically on the leadership of a person in a pastoral role serving in a ministerial context characterized by transition.  This can be any ministry that is consciously seeking to work with the change that is being experienced or is anticipated whether in leadership, culture, context, and ministry. This is weeklong course, with significant time spent in small group Leadership Learning Conversations, also includes presentations by the faculty and guest presenters. We request that arrangements be made in advance for coverage of pastoral responsibilities so that participants can focus fully on this program for the sake of their own learning and that of their colleagues in the cohort.

Required to participate: Completion of the Art of Transitional Ministry Week 1 (more than six months ago and within the past five years) and current service in a transitional setting. Transitional settings are any ministry that is consciously seeking to work with the change that is being experienced or is anticipated. E-mail a copy of your certificate of completion of Week 1 training to Deb DeMeester at ddemeester@lakesandprairies.org when you register.

Leadership Summit

The Leadership Summit, held each spring, is an opportunity for presbytery commission/committee leaders who work with congregations and pastoral leaders as well as presbytery staff to gather with national and Synod staff for learning and networking.

Once again the event will be held virtually in 2022 meaning there is no limit to how many people from each presbytery can participate.  The theme is The Future of Pastoral Leadership.
