Combining videos, workbook content, guided discussion and complementary readings,
Pastor and Parish, is a six-session series for United Methodist staff-parish relations committees that ties the committee’s responsibilities back to their spiritual beginnings.
It is a joint effort of the Clergy Health Initiative, the Duke Endowment and Duke Divinity School. Introduced at Annual Conference, Bishop Ward has encouraged local SPRC’s to use this tool to strengthen their work and their covenant life together. The hope was that SPRC’s could begin to use this material this fall but the release date has been delayed.
The expected release date is now November 2013. More information will be shared as it becomes available. A current update on the material is available here.
