In an effort to address isolation which some local church leaders feel, letters of invitation are being sent to local church leaders to participate in an initial conversation with others within the Alaska Conference serving in the same local church leadership role.
The effort is triggered from the work of a small task force created by the conference Leadership Team.
The goal of our first phase of connection is to create a network of support, collaboration, information sharing, and leadership development among our lay people in local church leadership roles.
Invitations have been sent out to the following groups for these initial conversations scheduled to happen as noted below:
Lay Leader - Monday, September 10th at 5:30 pm
Staff/Pastor Parish Relations Committee (SPPRC) Chair -
Monday, September 17th at 5:30 pm
Lay Member to Annual Conference - Monday, September 17th at 7 pm
Finance Chair - Monday, September 24th at 5:30 pm
Trustee Chair - Monday, October 1st at 6:30 pm
Watch for updated information soon on the initial conversations scheduled for the last group in our first phase of connection.
