Transitions - There are many factors that come into play when a congregation is in transition. Whether that congregation has just received an interim pastor, or has just received a newly called pastor, or is seeking new direction into God's future, it is a time of transition from something that was to something that is yet to be. 

The Transition Training Event will help attendees to focus on what it is that properly motivates ministry so that the "yet to be" is fully in the hands of God, and God's people are themselves renewed and ready for that ministry.




Interim Pastors, First Call and New Call Pastors, Pastors in congregations needing new direction.

 Interim Pastors 5 days - $160

First Call/New Call Pastors & Others (M-W) - $130

The first three days of presentations focus on elements that are common to all transitional situations, lifting up the differences for new call situations and interim situations. The final two days are specific to interim ministry and will review the specifics of the Florida-Bahamas Synod Transition Manual and processes.
