Part-Time is Plenty: Thriving Without Full-Time Clergy
October 12, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
With award-winning journalist and author Rev. G. Jeffrey MacDonald
Let’s face it, budgets are tight for churches. Switching from full-time to part-time clergy can help save money. But would switching to part-time lead to
irreversible decline? This workshop says no, it doesn’t have to. In fact, the switch to part-time can lead to more vitality if it’s managed well to repurpose assets and embrace new opportunities.
Journalist, author and part-time UCC minister G. Jeffrey MacDonald will share insights from his forthcoming book, Part-Time is Plenty: Thriving Without
Full-Time Clergy. He’ll shed light on what’s happening in 20 vital mainline
congregations that made the switch. He’ll guide attendees through exercises
tailored to discern what’s possible and promising in their particular ministry settings. Participants will leave with practical tips and a game plan for joining the ranks of thriving congregations with part-time pastors.
Cost is $25.00
