One Size Doesn't Fit All: Designing a Transitional Ministry

Too often we allow external circumstances to structure our ministries, or we allow old ways of doing things to limit our creativity in responding incarnationally to the unique needs of a congregation.

Rather than relying on a one size fits all approach to transitional ministry this tele-seminar will explore ways to create a ministry to meet the specific needs of a congregation.

Some of the topics covered in the article are:

  • Assessing the current congregational state.
  • Establishing a desired successful outcome.
  • Determining the required ministry resources to achieve the goal.
  • Determining the time requirement to achieve the goal.
