The period of transition after the departure of a minister is an incredibly important and vulnerable time for a congregation. Today, more than ever, this period is filled with questions about the future of the congregation and its staffing needs and desires. Finances, attendance, facilities, beliefs are all topics that have to be addressed during a time with no ministerial leadership. As churches needs increase during this transition period, organizations and denominations that previously provided support are no longer able to do so at the level required by congregations. There is a great need for consultants trained specifically for this time period in the life of a congregation.
Transition Consultant training will provide you with concrete tools to use with congregations, an awareness of how to navigate conflict that may arise, and a framework for how to walk alongside a congregation in transition. This framework helps a congregation to clarify its mission, strategize for the future, and navigate the details of the search process.
