Leadership & Renewal

Wednesday, November 21, 2018
1:00 – 2:00 pm (Eastern)
Hosted by Canadian Ministries
Presenter: the Rev. Heather Malnick, Living Faith Community Presbyterian Church

Amalgamation, when two or more churches merge to form a new congregation, is one of the ways God is bringing about new life in our denomination. While often chosen out of necessity (dwindling resources and declining membership), congregations have found that the renewal and vitality that amalgamation brings is well-worth the hard work and sacrifice it takes to bring congregations together.

In this webinar, we will discuss the process of amalgamation in The Presbyterian Church in Canada and hear from a ministry leader with first-hand experience in guiding a congregation through the discernment process and steps towards amalgamation.

Hosted by Canadian Ministries
Presenter: The Rev. David Moody, Heritage Green Family Church

Church restarts, or replants, often begin with when members of a congregation or the presbytery discern a new vision from God that is significantly different from the congregation’s current ministry focus. Restarts are most successful when a congregation is radically open to a new vision and able to fully trust God with the future of their church. A committed leadership team with the necessary skills and calling to move the vision forward as well as strong plan with inspiring short-term and long-term goals are also key to successfully restarting a church.

Join us for this webinar to learn more about discovering and moving forward with a new vision, finding and cultivating the necessary leaders, and creating a plan for success in church restarts.

1:00 – 2:00 p.m. (Eastern)
Hosted by Canadian Ministries
Presenter: The Rev. John Gilbert, Clerk, Presbytery of Grey Bruce Maitland

Co-operative and cluster ministries are comprised of churches that have chosen to work together − typically with shared staff, programs, and outreach − to provide fiscally sustainable ongoing worship and ministry in their respective communities. This model of ministry offers churches the ability to maintain their individuality as well as decision-making authority, but also benefit from shared programming and ministry. By sharing life together as a co-operative, congregations that were previously struggling have found new energy and life.

In this webinar, we will discuss the process of establishing a cooperative ministry in The Presbyterian Church in Canada and hear about the process first-hand from leaders who have done it.

Talking about money can feel scary.  This webinar discusses how to talk about money from a Biblical perspective in a joyful and generous way.  Did Jesus really mean we had to give away all we had to follow him?
