Creating and Leading the 21st Century Church

A New Thing Task Force of the NH Conference would like to support you in the challenge of leading our churches.  This is a 2 year Leadership Development Class for a team of laity and clergy from any church.   The first year will be curriculum-based, inspired by the UCC Pension Board’s Next Generation Leadership Initiative, and the second year will be a supported and peer-focused as the concepts are applied in individual churches.    This will include a congregational assessment tool and great teachers.


We will be holding an information meeting about this class on Saturday, May 5 from 9:30-noon at the Conference Center.   There will be no charge for the Informational meeting but we need to know you are coming.   To register, or with questions, please contact Gayle Murphy at


This class will be partially fund by the Pembroke Fund of the NH Conference and has been endorsed by the Clergy Support Ministry of the Conference.
