New Center for Transformational Leadership Launches

New Center for Transformational Leadership Launches

At this Saturday's Annual Meeting, the worship offering will be dedicated to supporting a completely new Southern New England Conference initiative aimed at assisting churches with making adaptive and innovative changes.

"You spoke. We listened," said Bridget Johnson, the new staff member heading up the project. "The Center for Transformational Leadership is an exciting new initiative that is being created in direct response to our clergy and lay leaders who have been asking the Conference for programs and resources to help navigate these challenging times and to discern a new road for the future." 

"The Center for Transformational Leadership will equip clergy and lay leaders, congregations and covenantal partners of the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ with resources, tools and support to create a new vision and do the transformative ministry they are called to do in the local church, community and the world," she said.

The Center will be creating resources for Assessment, Discernment, Visioning and Leadership Training. It will offer expert guidance on a wide variety of topics including Conflict Transformation and Hybrid Worship. Small Church Collaborations, New Ministry Initiatives and LGBTQIA+ clergy will find support through the Center.

"We currently have a team of professional level trained coaches that offer both group and individual coaching. Congregations often find the guidance of a coach beneficial when embarking on a journey of discernment," Johnson said. "We also host over forty Clergy Communities of Practice that offer support and guidance in small group settings."
