Basic Training for NEW & Experienced Ruling Elders

Rev. Alex Becker & Ruling Elder Ellie Grove

The nominating committee called, and you said ‘yes,’ and now you are officially a Ruling Elder in the PC(USA). Want to do this well? Let us help. Join us for a dynamic, interactive, and informative module of instruction that will ensure that you are skilled and prepared to serve God in a brand new way! This is primarily geared for the brand new Ruling Elder, but may also be helpful to those who would like to further develop their leadership skills as Ruling Elders.

Money Matters: Pastor Workshop

Rev. Doug Friant

Does money cause more fights than fun in your congregation? Does talking about money sound terrible? Then this workshop is for you! Money Matters is about the important, radical, and joy-filled message of money in the Kingdom of God. We’ll talk about stewardship across the broad spectrum of our personal lives, spiritual lives, and congregational lives. You’ll gain insights that will help you inspire faithfulness, fund ministry, and manage funds as you prepare for the future. 

Training for Deacons

Rev. Dr. Erin Cox-Holmes & Ruling Elder Stephanie Borger

What does a Deacon do? Join to learn about the call to be a Deacon. We will discuss the unique ways the “ministry of compassion” is demonstrated in our congregations. As a caring arm of the church, deacons can model service for their congregation and community.

Basic Training for NEW Clerks of Session

Rev. Dr. Michael Wilson, Stated Clerk

“Initial Clerk Training” This is for elders who are assuming clerk duties for the first time, elders who are “coming back to clerking” after a time away, and anyone who wants a refresher on the duties of a Clerk. Led by Rev. Dr. Michael Wilson (Stated Clerk), we’ll go over the core roles of a clerk and the resources available to clerks.

Training for EXPERIENCED Clerks of Session

Rev. Sarah Kneier & Ruling Elder Dianne Yuninger

“Ongoing Clerk Conversations” This is an opportunity for elders who have been clerks to explore topics of interest to clerks -- including questions about minutes, rolls, and registers, electronic meetings -- designed in collaboration with those who will attend. Led by Rev. Sarah Kneier (Assistant Stated Clerk) and Ruling Elder Dianne Yuninger (Recording Clerk), we’ll delve deeper into what it means to be the “clerk.”
