Faith communities regularly move through states of transition whether undergoing a change in leadership, modifying the use of a church building, adjusting to a decline in attendee size, or redefining your main ministries. Transitions done poorly often lead to church splits and hard feelings. However, if done effectively, these times of transition can move your church to new levels of engagement and energy.

You will walk away with practical tools for to help your congregation foster:

  • focused prayer for your neighbors,
  • the use of insightful questions to better understand the people you serve,
  • the practice of eating together as a way to build relational bridges,
  • specific ways of serving those put on your congregation’s heart,
  • deeper spiritual conversations, and
  • expanded spiritual discernment and engagement in and among your people.

Join us for an interactive workshop about how to prayerfully discern the next steps for your congregation and guide your church through a transition. Leaders from Habecker Mennonite Church will also provide a brief case study on how their congregation adapted to new realities.

This is the Annual Landis Communities Clergy Breakfast. Complementary breakfast is included, but registration is required. The event is open to all who are interested in the topic, not just clergy. Registration deadline for in-person breakfast: Monday, May 6
