The CEEP Network Presents
Pivoting and Expanding: Fulfilling the Mission God Gives Us in the Most Challenging Times
A Webinar for Denominational and Parish Leaders
Thursday, May 7
Prior to COVID-19, we were already facing challenges of declining attendance, funding constraints, and the average age of our parishioners increasing yearly. The trends at play prior to the COVID-19 pandemic continue, and most likely accelerating, bringing more urgency to the changes we need to embrace and sustain. While these are challenging times, they are times that magnify the challenges the church already faced. They are also times that present opportunities. The mission has not changed but our strategies must. Waiting for things to go back to the way they were will only find us further into the palliative care ward. Bold moves and a new vision are required of leaders in this time. Our panel will be addressing the real time information being gathered and what we should be planning for when we push these trends forward in the months ahead.
