Use your gifts for ministry and new ways of thinking to serve as you have been called - and get compensated for it. Bye-bye 'bi-vocational'! Learn to serve inside and beyond the walls of the church to make one sustainable vocation. Only about half of all clergy get paid a full-time salary by a congregation or other institution. Fewer than half of congregations can afford them! Beyond compensation - which is a huge issue! - this speaks to an institution that has been declining for decades, and an era of huge leaps in innovation. It's time - it's beyond time - to take what we have learned about bearing the Scripture, tradition, and sacraments of the faith and translate them into service for today's world. Learn to become a Creative Minister, bringing the Good News of God's love to a church - and a world - that needs it! This course is for ordained Christian clergy - or other ministers - with vision for sustainable ministry. Join us as we find the way. .
I have been an Episcopal priest for 20 years, and I have seen the institutional church - which I love - struggle to adapt in the 21st century.
After a decade serving in congregations, and 5 years serving on a denominational leadership level, I felt called to walk alongside clergy and congregations as we find new ways of serving the church in the digital world - a world where most people no longer belong to traditional Christian congregations.
I am passionate about sharing the Good News of God's love for everyone, and I am tireless in encouraging my fellow ministers to take bold steps into the adventurous future.
