Barbara Lemmel, Parish Consultant Coordinator

Did you begin ministry in a new congregational setting in 2020? If so, you’re having to navigate getting to know the church during a time of social distancing, when meetings, worship and even pastoral care has often had to be in a virtual or online setting. The usual practices for settling into a congregation simply don’t work; they have to be adapted or put on hold for a more “normal” time.

The Parish Consultants will hold a special Think Tank for pastors who made an appointment transition in the past year. It will be an opportunity to speak with your colleagues in similar situations, to discover the common frustrations and challenges as well as to share strategies that have emerged.

Choose one of two sessions:
11 a.m. to 12:30 pm on Tuesday, Dec 1, 2020
7-9:30 pm Wednesday, Dec 2, 2020
