Offering education in the skills and understanding necessary for leading a congregation and faith community in transition

Sponsored by Montreat Conference Center, in cooperation with the Interim Ministry Consortium
August 25–30, 2019

Leading a congregation and faith community through transition is challenging and rewarding. It is recognized both in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and in other denominations as a specialized ministry. It takes knowledge, skill, resilience, and spiritual strength to navigate the waters of transition in a way that allows a congregation and its leaders to be open to possibilities, go deeper, and thrive. The Art of Transitional Ministry offers education in the skills and understanding necessary for leading a congregation and faith community in transition.
