All Clergy Circuit Leaders are invited to attend an Update Event and Gathering of Clergy Circuit Leaders in August. One event will be held in each district. The focus will be the way forward through change. There are many new Clergy Circuit Leaders; Circuit configurations have changed; clergy appointments have changed within Circuits, and expectations about the practice of Circuit Ministry have changed. The day will be led by Sam Royappa, Director of Connectional Ministries, and Don Greer, Coordinator of Circuit Ministries. The focus of discussion for the day will be on leadership qualities, methods, essentials and priorities for Circuits. Both new and continuing Clergy Circuit Leaders are encouraged to attend. If you cannot attend the event in your District due to date conflict, or if an event in an adjoining District is more accessible to you, please feel free to register to attend a location and time that is best for you.
