This process was created to help ensure that all newly appointed pastors and their PPRC are meeting monthly for at least four months and that they are checking-in on basic topics of the transition process.
As the United States population becomes increasingly diverse, it is imperative for churches to develop the awareness and skills needed to interact successfully with people from diverse experiences.

As church leaders seeking to connect with the community, we must be willing to be lifelong learners and willing to implement innovative ways of working with a diverse community. This work begins with understanding how culture operates.
