Becoming a vital leadership team begins with discernment in community. The Rev. Ronald Byrd, Lead Consultant for Vital Teams, will facilitate a panel discussion concerning what vital teams do and how to discern if the team leadership approach to ministry is appropriate for your unique ministry context.

Panelists include Daniel Vélez-Rivera, ECF Fellow and Vicar of St. Gabriel´s Episcopal Church in Leesburg, VA; Deb Shamlin, Christian educator and vestry clerk at St. Paul's, Diocese of OH; Jane Cisluycis, Diocese of Northern Michigan; Lynn Schmissrauter, Congregational Consultant for Team Leadership Development.

We encourage lay and clergy leaders considering team ministry to participate in this discussion, where we will look at what it means to be a vital team and the ways to which team ministry can be an effective and efficient approach to ministry in various kinds faith communities.
