The North Carolina Conference will host a Transition Seminar for all churches and pastors experiencing changes in ministerial appointments. This year’s Transition Seminar will be on Sunday, May 15, at four locations from 3-6 pm. Pastors will attend the meeting corresponding to the District of their new appointment. Pastors, register at districts.nccumc.org.
At the Transition Seminar, you will receive information on ending your current appointment well and strategies to begin your new appointment with enthusiasm and excitement. You will also have the opportunity to meet the S/PPRC members, who will be attending from your new church, and get acquainted with your new District Superintendent and Administrative Assistant to the DS (AADS).
Clergy retiring, taking a leave of absence, being appointed to an Extension Ministry, or taking an appointment outside of the NC Conference, are not required to attend the Transition Seminar.
