Summer is the time for transitions and renewal when it comes to our congregations. Whether you are going through the annual changes of leadership on the Board or also experiencing staff transitions, why not use this time of renewal as an opportunity to utilize the Central Midwest District’s consultant program?

Perhaps it's time for a new strategic plan as you head toward that long awaited building project or you are looking for some growth strategies. Perhaps you need some community building and leadership development for your new Board to covenant together and begin the important work of the year ahead. Perhaps your religious education program could use some reinvigorating or organizational development.

Our district consultant program offers congregations the support of a trained network of consultants who are available to provide outside expertise and facilitation in a wide variety of congregational needs. Whether you are looking for strategic planning, leadership development, improved communication or techniques for conflict engagement, our consultants program can help you. The consultant program can even help your congregation to explore new ministries, improve newcomer hospitality, develop a long-range plan, strategize about building issues, and offer ideas for launching a capital campaign.

For fair-share congregations, the cost of a full-day workshop is $285 and a half-day workshop is $210. Non-fair share congregations have an extra cost of $150. All of these workshops also require a travel equalization fee of $55. To arrange a consultation, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
