The reality of change in the church is a constant in the shifting sands of today’s world.  Whether we effectively manage that change and guide our churches through the change process often determines whether we remain vital leaders or find ourselves looking for other work!  Pastors and church leaders can transform this challenge into a chance for growth and vitality with the right skills and attitude.  As churches address our changing world, they become places of transformation and spiritual renewal. Workshop leader and coach Mary Scifres will enrich and strengthen our leadership skills as we explore change in our culture, changes in worship and in our churches, and the opportunities to transform lives as we adapt in this changing world. Scifres offers practical tools for discerning when to choose change, managing change, and guiding our churches into new ventures. Together, we will explore the impact of change and ways an adaptive church can offer powerful and meaningful ministry in our world.
