NEW DATE: 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. April 1-4, 2019, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
