    1:00 pmFamily Resource Center - Baptist Children's Home - Thomasville, NC

    Faith communities are looking for assistance in meeting the increasingly complex challenges of mission, ministry and congregational life. The programmatic, cookie-cutter answers once offered by denominations and traditional consultants are now often inadequate to meet these challenges. The need is growing for consultants who can provide more personalized, context-specific help to faith communities.

    To meet this growing need for qualified consultants, the Center for Congregational Health, in partnership with the Interim Ministry Network, is offering a process to train and develop consultants to work with faith communities.  The training consists of a 5-day classroom experience, followed by individual fieldwork and participation in a series of teleconferences.

    Dates: 

    The dates for the class are October 21, 2019 - October 25, 2019. The lab will begin at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on Monday and conclude Friday before noon.  It will be conducted at the Family Resource Center, on the campus of the Baptist Children’s Home in Thomasville, North Carolina.  Specific dates and times for the fieldwork teleconferences will be scheduled during the class.

    Costs for Residential Students (including single accommodations, meals and breaks):

    • Standard: $1,765
    • IMN members: $1,665

    Costs for Commuting Students (including meals and breaks):

    • Standard: $1,535
    • IMN members: $1,435

    Please note: a quality learning experience is dependent upon a minimum number of active participants. The Center reserves the right to cancel any training event that does not reach a minimum of 10. Please take this into consideration when making travel arrangements.
