Navigating Change in Changing Times

November 30, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

This will be a “from the field, for the field” workshop. Participants are teachers and learners. We will share with one another what we’ve learned – what’s working and what’s not working. Together we’ll surface best practices to adapt in our congregational contexts. This is a time for colleague support and sharing – in ways that can make a difference in your own call and in your congregation(s).

Join us for this workshop on Thursday, November 30, at Trinity Lutheran Church, located at 210 7th Street South in Moorhead. The workshop will start at 10:00 a.m. and finish at 4:00 p.m. A basket will be available for any free-will donations you wish to give to help cover the costs for the day.



Topic covered during the workshop will includes these:

  • Breaking out of nostalgia and living more out of imagination
  • Being future oriented fully appreciative of the congregation’s history and narrative
  • Avoiding battles between those seeking change and those seeking status quo
