LEARNING OPPORTUNITY - The Church in Transition

The first our 2020 series, the February seminar is titled: “Why Church That Was Isn’t Anymore” – An Overview of Transitional Times. The speaker is Rev. Beth Wagner. Rev. Wagner has served in seven transitional/interim positions in her career including the 2012 federation between Rockford 2nd Congregational and 1st Presbyterian churches. She serves as the Team Leader for the Midwest Initiative for Leading Transition, a group of active and retired pastors and mid-level PCUSA executives dedicated to equipping church leaders for ministry ‘on the edge’. While traditionally, this training has been directed toward pastors, the team is now beginning to adapt their training for lay leaders as well. Blackhawk Presbytery is one of the first to be able to offer this training over the course of the year.
