ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
Church life in Western Canada is changing fast. Smaller congregations mean clergy increasingly serve part-time. Jeffrey MacDonald will share research and experience on how congregations are making room for ministry that is more shared, creative, impactful, and sustainable, with part-time ministry personnel. Gain practical knowledge and research-based hope for navigating the challenges of our time, and learn how congregations are stepping into a new vital future with part-time ministry personnel.
Jeffrey MacDonald is an award-winning religion reporter, church consultant, and part-time pastor of a small United Church of Christ congregation in New Hampshire.
He is the author of: Part-Time is Plenty: Thriving without Full-Time Clergy (2020) and Thieves in the Temple: The Christian Church and the Selling of the American Soul (2010).
