Equipping Pastors

You have probably seen the flyer for the four retreats (available on our “News & Events” page). There will also be monthly meetings here in Shenango Presbytery. Margaret Trautman is providing staff support to a planning team consisting of Ray Hylton, Jason Hickman, Amy Na, Monica Hamilton and Dave Lingle. If you have topics on pastoral leadership of concern to you, please contact Margaret ched@shenango.org so that she can share them with the planning team.
