The Right Start: Beginning Ministry in a New Setting is a video-based training resource for clergy preparing to begin ministry in a new setting. It includes video instructional segments, resources, planning aids, tools, and supplementary materials for planning a successful transition. The current version has been revised and enhanced with new material on the relational aspect of transition, such as how to handle social media and issues of concern to single clergy and associate pastors.
The Group Training Version is designed for group training sessions conducted by conferences, districts, or other judicatories. It includes a facilitator’s guide; sample training agenda; handouts; discussion questions; information on how to plan a training event; and permission to exhibit the presentations in group settings and duplicate written materials for participants.
