Join Presbyterians from PNNE, Boston, and Southern New England in a day of leadership training and resourcing!
Ruling elders and congregational leaders are invited to join the Rev. Eric Markman and Ruling Elder Suresh Kumar from the Hartford Street Presbyterian Church for leadership training. The training will focus on the spiritual leadership of the elders of the church, as well as helping elders think about the things that are blocking them from mission and ministry.
Teaching elders are invited to join the Rev. Dr. David Gambrell, Associate in the Office of Theology, Worship and Formation for the PC(USA) and editor of the newly revised Book of Common Worship. David is also a songwriter and several of his works are included in Glory to God. He will introduce pastors and worship leaders to the new Book of Common Worship, and then facilitate brainstorming around worship planning and lectionary preparation for the coming church season.
The Rev. Allison Seed from the Board of Pensions will be present to answer questions about the Benefits plan, retirement planning, and other pensions related issues. Information will also be available from the Presbyterian Foundation and Presbyterian Mission Agency.
We will begin at 9:30 am with worship and finish at 4:00 pm after closing worship. Morning refreshments and lunch will be served; the cost is $20 per person.
