Transitional ministry offers a unique gift in a congregation’s life. Whether a change in pastor comes because of conflict, retirement, shrinking numbers and weariness, or questions of congregational viability, transitional ministry walks alongside a congregation while it answers questions of mission, courage and transformation. March 23-25, 2020, Amigo Centre hosts a Transitional Ministry Training retreat for individuals interested in pursuing this type of ministry. Visit tmt.amigocentre.org for additional information, or contact Amigo Centre at 269.651.2811 or email@example.com
“Hearing and Seeing Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew” – will be held at Amigo Centre, March 27-29, 2020. Tim Lehman, retired minister, will be sharing based on his recently published book, “All Authority Has Been Given To Me.” Tim will highlight parts of his book and encourage us to rethink long-held assumptions. In a world of division, bitter partisan politics, and violence, where do we turn? What might truly heal us personally and communally? Imagine a world changed because of God’s unconditional love channeled through you. The retreat begins Friday evening and concludes with Brunch on Sunday. Registration includes lodging or commuting rates. We look forward to a dynamic weekend of learning and growing in our understanding of God’s unconditional love for all. If you would like a copy of his book at a reduced rate contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 269-651-2811. Registration Deadline: March 16.
