New pastor? New church? Attend a transition workshop in your district


March 28, 2017

Changing pastors is part of the connectional life of The United Methodist Church. The transition workshops hosted by each district are designed to support pastors changing appointments and congregations getting new pastors this year. The goal is to ease stress and make a smooth transition.

Pastors and transition teams from churches undergoing changes in pastoral leadership this year are expected to attend a workshop.

Who is on the transition team? Transition teams should have four to eight members including the current pastor, lay leader, Staff Parish Relations Committee representatives, and others with skills for this work. Team members should be people who work well with others. 

The links below will take you to the calendar and more details about each event. Details will be added as they become available.
