In a time when some churches feel resources are scarce, we seek to use our visibility and organizational skill to live into God’s promised abundance. Last week, we provided an opportunity for Music Ministers to gather, celebrating their ministry and facilitating conversation on how to lead in difficult times, with the help of musician Paul Van Ness and his Advent cantata “The Tidings
.” We welcomed our newest staff member, Rev. Carrington Moore, who will lead the Lydia Fellows Program for Thriving in Part-time Ministry
. He will be gathering cohorts of part-time pastors for the purpose of building esteem and capacity while offering encouragement and opportunities for continuing education.
