Leadership & Renewal

Wednesday, February 20, 2019
1:00 – 2:00 pm (Eastern)
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.

Wednesday, April 10, 2019
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.
