Appreciative Interim Ministry Training

Appreciative Interim Ministry Training
Mon, Apr 23 2018, 9:30am to Fri, Apr 27 2018, 12:30pm

In partnership with the Clergy Leadership Institute, we are pleased to offer Appreciative Interim Ministry Training with the Rev. Dr. Rob Voyle, a week-long intensive to be held April 23-27, 2018 at Episcopal House.

Although the focus is on Transitional Ministry (as in those leading congregations in the interim period between clergy), Rob states that “since any change will result in change dynamics, all clergy whether ‘settled’ or ‘interim’ need to understand the process of facilitating change.” In addition, we believe lay leadership would benefit from understanding these change dynamics. Given this, all are welcome and encouraged to attend this training.

Rob is the director of the Clergy Leadership Institute, and currently Interim at St John’s Church in Charlotte, NC. For more information about Rob Voyle and the Clergy Leadership Institute please visit
