Empowering Pastor-Congregation Relationship Using the PCRC model
September 8, 9 am to Noon at Blossom Hill Mennonite Church
Presenter: Del Glick

This training is intended for teams interested in developing or improving a Pastor-Congregation Relations Committee (PCRC). The three-hour seminar will provide an overview of the role and purpose of a PCRC and explore best practices and cautions that teams can implement to develop a structure, system, and strategy that fits each specific congregation.

This event involves discussion and strategy development based on each congregational context so PCRC teams are encouraged to attend together.

Del Glick played an active role in developing the PCRC training content for Mennonite Church USA and enjoys assisting congregational teams better care for their pastors.

Thanks to Landis Communities for sponsoring this event!
