The Susquehanna Valley Ministry Center (SVMC) is offering the second event in a series on “Nurturing Ministry Skills,” a virtual educational opportunity to nurture ministry skills for clergy and lay leaders of congregations.
The online event on May 3 at 7-8:30 p.m. (Eastern time) will be on the topic, “Leadership in Times of Crisis” led by Paul Mundey, immediate past Annual Conference moderator, former senior pastor at Frederick (Md.) Church of the Brethren, and a former member of the denominational staff where he was director of evangelism and congregational growth and staff for Korean ministry.
“How do you navigate a ‘blizzard,’ e.g., an overwhelming rush and deluge of challenge?” said a description of the event. “Whether you reference the ongoing (albeit waning) pandemic, the tragedy in Ukraine, the deepening of polarization, and division–this is a demanding, draining season for leaders. In our session, we will focus on a way forward, exploring best practices of crisis leadership. We will accent hope, and the reality: we can do all things in Christ, who strengthens us.”
Registration is free but required. For a $10 fee, ministers may earn 0.15 continuing education units. Registrants may make an optional donation to SVMC. Please note there is a non-refundable “event platform fee” for credit card payments.
SVMC is a Church of the Brethren ministry education partner with Bethany Theological Seminary, the Brethren Academy for Ministerial Leadership, and the church districts of Atlantic Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Middle Pennsylvania, Southern Pennsylvania, and Western Pennsylvania.
