Fresh Start Releases New Resource for Congregations and Diocesan Transition Ministers
Fresh Start has developed a new resource to help congregations and diocesan transition ministers with the search process for a new rector. This new three part tool, Fresh Start in the Search Process, will help congregational lay leaders, diocesan transition minsiters, search consultants, and interims to lead church communities from the beginning stages of a search process, to a new rector.
Fresh Start in the Search Process includes an overview and suggested timeline, a series of short PowerPoint sessions to be used in conjunction with regular meetings, and supplemental materals for congregations in transition.
Fresh Start and its sponsors -- The Episcopal Church's Office for Transition Ministry, the Episcopal Church Foundation, and CREDO Institute, Inc. -- offer this new tool for use throughout the Church with clergy and congregations.
All materials are available through the Fresh Start website.
