The Bi-District Clergy (Alexandria and Arlington pastors) have 3 or 4 meetings each year. Clergy are expected to attend these gatherings and also to be meeting regularly in their clergy peer learning groups.
Clergy meetings, like so much else, will look a little different this year.
We will begin the year with our meetings via Zoom. A registration link for the September meeting will be sent to you in August. Please put these dates on your calendar:
October 5, 2021: Clergy Meeting #1 (Digital) 9:30 -12 NOON

The theme for this year’s Clergy Meetings is “What’s Next?” and we will begin on Tuesday, October 5, 2021. We will meet via Zoom and RSVP is required.

Our speaker for October 5 is Scott Cormode, author of the Innovative Church.
“The church as we know it is calibrated for a world that no longer exists. It needs to recalibrate in order to address the questions that animate today’s congregants. Leading congregational studies researcher Scott Cormode explores the role of Christian practices in recalibrating the church for the twenty-first century, offering church leaders innovative ways to express the never-changing gospel to their ever-changing congregations. The book has been road-tested with over one hundred churches through the Fuller Youth Institute and includes five questions that guide Christian leaders who wish to innovate.”
