The Transitional Leadership Forum Schedule

TLF_Logo1BThe Transitional Leadership Forum (formerly the “Interim Ministry Collegium”) is a network of church leaders engaged in transitional congregational ministry. Meeting every second Wednesday of the month from 12:00-2:00 p.m. at the Presbytery Office, the Transitional Leadership Forum provides opportunities for leaders to network with others and engage in pertinent conversations related to ministry in seasons of transition.
