Our church is about to embark on an exciting new Shared Ministry governance model, which has been under discernment for several years now. Why the change?
Multiple reasons: better collaboration, more reliance on a knowledgeable and experienced staff, better communication, more time for congregants to focus on fellowship, spiritual journey and important issues.
