A free Searching for the Called introductory webinar will be offered on Wednesday, March 7, at 1 pm eastern. Any interested party is welcome to attend, and the information will be of particular interest to congregational and search team leaders, interim ministers, and judicatory and denominational leaders. Here’s what the webinar will cover:
Backstory for Searching for the Called. Learn where this approach to ministerial searches originated.
Unique aspects of this approach to searches. Find out how Searching for the Called is different from other books and manuals you might have read about ministerial searches.
Applicability to your context. Take the assessment to discern whether Searching for the Called is right for your church, either on its own or in tandem with an approach recommended by your judicatory.
Overview of the stages. Zoom out to see the big picture of five groupings of search stages.
Deep dive into the stage “Opening to one another: conducting initial interviews.” View a website demonstration and explore the subheadings in one particular phase of the search.
Coaching information. Hear about how search team coaching can complement the Searching for the Called materials so that your congregation can take full advantage of the opportunities afforded by the pastoral leadership transition.
