New England Region
New England Regional staff encourages and supports our congregations to take a deep interest in each other; to consider best practices together; to model spiritual leadership with one another; and to share their stories of doubt, risk and transformation. By cultivating connections among our congregations, we seek to inspire new and innovative models of doing church and coach existing congregations to a deeper and a wider practice of faith, hope and love.
We offer 40+ learning events during the year through in-person and online workshops. We address key areas of congregational life for lay and professional leaders, and their teams. We also offer Our Whole Lives (OWL) facilitator trainings and Renaissance Modules. Register early to guarantee your spot.
We offer individual and group consultations and coaching, retreat facilitation, help with conflict transformation, support for ministerial transitions, consultation on justice ministries, support for religious educators, small congregations and stewardship.
Your New England Regional staff is committed to equipping and supporting religious professionals and congregational leaders for vibrant ministries in vital congregations. Contact anyone on our team to start a conversation about your current needs.
In an effort to make resources as accessible as possible, we provide here a range of downloadable materials and links. These resources come to us from a variety of sources, including presentation materials from our workshops.
