Ministers’ Moments: A Space for Authentic Conversation About Ministry

Are you an actively serving authorized minister or lay pastor? On Tuesdays and Thursdays at noon CT you can join a Zoom call to connect with your Ministerial Staff and fellow clergy. These are public, non-confidential conversations for our active church leaders to check in and hold each other in a peaceful space, ask questions, and pray together in the midst of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

As you navigate your way through our website you will find stories, resources, and connections that are intended to introduce newcomers to our beloved church, provide tools for seasoned leaders on church committees and boards, and offer points of interest to the many others in between. Make yourself at home here, reply to a story the insight you gleaned from it, and if you feel inspired to add and grow our ministry, find the Donate button in the main menu to make your contribution! We are glad you are here!
