The Board met last night and will continue our Board activities together, but not in person for a while. We are fortunate that our interim ministers have previous experience with online ministry and online worship to help us all stay connected as a community in these unprecedented times.
The Minister Selection process continues without interruption. We are addressing this question today:
In “developmental minister”, does the word developmental refer to the development of the minister or to the development of the congregation? Both! Developmental ministers are not trainees. They are highly experienced, often with decades of experience. Developmental refers to the shared ministry of both the congregation and the minister. It’s a mutual effort, with the congregation making a commitment to growth in the goal areas identified.
