Pastoral Transitions 2021 – Leaving Well/Starting Well

Congratulations on your new appointment. We are excited to come alongside you as you transition.

Please use the decision tree to determine the steps on your Clergy Transition path.

If you have questions or concerns about the process, please contact Rev. Dr. Michelle Holmes Chaney at


Register for a Clergy Transitions Workshop

Please be sure to have followed the Decision Tree to ensure you understand the process. You only need to register for ONE of the Transitions Workshops. It is BEST if both the pastor and the SPRC representative attend the same session.

If you have been appointed to or are receving a cross-racial/cross-cultural appointment we encourage you to attend the transition workshop on Saturday, June 5 at 10 a.m. and join a special CR/CC workshop that begins at Noon.

Tuesday, May 4
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Thursday, May 20
7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Saturday, June 5
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
