Leadership Ministries

MCM’s Leadership Ministries staff and programs resource our spiritual leaders and congregations to develop skilled and well-supported leaders.

Leadership Ministries supports pastors by:

  • offering individual pastoral care
  • providing opportunities for continuing education, seminars and workshops designed to strengthen and stretch ministry
  • facilitating and leading monthly pastors’ cluster meetings in each of four regions within MCM

Appropriate resources and workshops are also made available to those involved in other aspects of congregational leadership.

Leadership Ministries also assists congregations in:

  • encouraging and calling persons to ministry
  • pastoral searches
  • pastor-congregation relationships
  • credentialing persons for ministry
  • pastoral reviews
  • providing assistance in situations of mediation and conflict resolution

Leadership Ministries staffing is in transition.

For immediate help on Leadership Ministries matters, contact Michael Pahl, Executive Minister.

Beginning August 22, 2022, Jeff Friesen and Karen Schellenberg will be Co-Leadership Ministries Directors.
