Congregational Life Ministries
Congregational Life Ministries provides coaches, collaborators, and consultants to assist congregations in reaching out and connecting with their local communities.
Renaissance 2017-2020 is Congregational Life Ministries’ two-point foci of Growing Vital Churches and equipping Church Planters through resources, training events, networking, and coaching that enable congregations, established and new, to offer compelling ministries that reach more people, more young people and more diverse people in our communities. Congregational Life Ministries is committed to empowering people to articulate and embody their faith in significant ways that reach out with genuine hospitality to people wherever they are, inviting and welcoming them as together we seek to renew existing congregations.
A number of mutual support groups will be offered throughout the Conference, allowing participants to help each other through sharing personal experience, being listened to, and listening to others. A Disabilities Ombudsman is available to address Conference-related concerns and needs.
