Pastors Leading Missional Transformation

Shenango Presbytery has been involved in leadership training for pastors and elders for more than a dozen years.  The next opportunity will come in the form of learning communities of pastor mentoring groups.  This “Missional Experimentation” will include pastors and commissioned ruling elders from across western PA.  If you are interested in more details, please contact Dave Dawson.

Save the Date!!!
