We define vulnerable congregations as those that feel vulnerable. This can be any congregation, because the source of vulnerability can be any number of things: a new location, a new purpose, a change of clergy, financial concerns, a new adventure – anything that leaves a congregation feeling open or exposed and unsure of the future. Whether the source of vulnerability is excitement or anxiety, the goal of this priority is to walk with the congregation to help identify the where and why of their vulnerability, to identify existing gifts that will help uplift the congregation, and provide support to help develop the gifts that will sustain.
The first step is conversation. Contact the Rev. Canon David Sellery, your regional canon or a missioner to get started.
