New Initiative: Clergy Care

New Initiative: Clergy Care Team

The vision of this team is to be encouragers to clergy, provide various kinds of resources, to be available to assist and raise up dynamic clergy and respond to needs of our clergy. 

Keep this new initiative in prayer as we continue to build this ministry. Please be sure to come back to this page as we will be updating and posting more details very soon!

Resources for the new year:

January 2021
Preaching Workshop with Dr. Alyce McKenzie

This workshop will explore how to preach the Lenten texts of Mark and John to reach four audiences of contemporary people: the “bewildereds,” the “been arounds”, the “not been arounds” and the “bleeding.”

It will equip participants to shape sermons that allow the light of Easter to shine through the shadows of Lent.

The registration fee is $20. This is for anyone (Clergy or Lay) who preaches regularly.

For any questions, please contact Rev. Karen Horan at
