Ministry Administration in Context

Date:  TBD
Location: Riverview Retreat Center at Pecometh
Cost: $239 double occupancy or $359 single occupancy

The ministry of administration can look very different from context to context. Gather with other clergy to review the basics of administration as defined by the Book of Discipline, and explore how ordering the life of the church may look different depending on:

  • Church membership size
  • Number of staff (or no staff)
  • Church structure and culture (established church vs new church start, etc)

Plus, we will offer a session about serving in extension ministry and appointments beyond the local church,  as well as how Deacons relate to the local church.
