Webinar: Managing Loss and Change for Such a Time as This


The offices of GROW, EQUIP, and CONNECT will be offering one-hour webinars on the First Tuesday of each month from 6 – 7 pm through the end of the year. (CEU’s will be available)

Please join Gary Shockley on Tuesday, August 3, as he discusses the topic of “Managing Loss and Change for Such A Time as This”.  Because of the pandemic our church communities have experienced multiple layers of loss this past year. Even without a pandemic life can be hard and losses of any kind can make life even more difficult. With loss comes a multitude of emotions and behaviors. When we fail to see the connections between these and the losses we have experienced, in ourselves and in the church, we can respond in unhelpful ways. How do we help ourselves and our people navigate the challenges of loss and transition?

Rev. Gary Alan Shockley, our conference Director of Equipping Vital Congregations and Certified Grief Counselor and Spiritual Director, invites you to attend this important webinar that will identify the many challenges that come with loss and the transitions that follow in our personal lives AND in the corporate life of the church. Gary will give leaders guidance in understanding and exercising their unique role in helping congregants, and the church, navigate change to embrace the new beginnings just on the horizon. REGISTER TODAY
