Uniting Mission & Education together with Rob McFarlane are pleased to announce the delivery of a Fundamentals of Transitional Ministry: The Work of the Leader (FTML) course in Sydney in August from 6th – 8th at The Centre for Ministry. Back in Sydney for the first time since 2011, the course is ideal for individuals in both lay and ordained ministry, or for individuals with a calling into ministry.
Fundamentals of Transitional Ministry : The Work of the Leader (FTML), is a three-day course designed to upskill and equip ministers and those in lay ministry with the skills to support congregations in times of transition or change as a community.
Fundamentals of Transitional Ministry: The Work of the Leader is a three-day program which gives participants an introduction to the key concepts and practices of ministering with congregations and agencies in times of transition.
The course has three key foundations:
– Understanding Transition
– Systems Theory
– Family Systems
These key foundations are introduced on Day 1 and then unpacked by reflecting on transitions that lead to new life and ministry practice. The course also teaches an array of tools for understanding one’s ministry context, and one’s place within it.
While it is a stand-alone program, it can also be the first phase of training that leads to being qualified as an Intentional Interim Minister.
FTML is useful for anyone in lay or ordained ministry, who are dealing with change, transition and new opportunities and also for those exploring a call to Intentional Interim Ministry.
Who should do this course?
– People in lay ministry
– People in ordained ministerial roles
– On a pathway to ministry
– Presbytery Staff & Office bearers
– Third phase of ministry participants
