Clarifying Covenantal Expectations Between Congregations and Pastors in Uncertain Times
Rev. David Keck
Chaplain, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and Author of "Healthy Churches, Faithful Pastors: Covenant Expectations for Thriving Together "
Everyone wants a thriving church community capable of addressing extraordinary challenges. But developing and sustaining such congregations require candid conversations. This practical workshop designed for church officers helps leaders prepare for critical conversations about changing expectations for congregations and pastors. The workshop provides both a theological framework as well as hands-on experience with discussions about what congregations and pastors can expect from each other.
