Barbara Lemmel, Parish Consultant Coordinator

The Parish Consultants will offer four Church-During-Pandemic Think Tanks via Zoom in the coming weeks.  These free, one-time events will give an opportunity for conversation and cross-fertilization of ideas and strategies among the clergy and lay leadership of the conference.  At the end of each session, participants will discern opportunities for further learning, coaching, and/or connection.  

Each Think Tank will be held twice: Tuesday 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 pm, and Wednesday 7:00-8:30 pm.  
The Zoom links will be identical for the two days. Contact Barbara Lemmel for more information and to receive the Zoom links.
