The NJ Missional Communities Transitions Working Group convened for its first face-to-face meeting on Friday, January 24, 2020 at the New Brunswick Theological Seminary. We got to know each other and oriented ourselves to the overall work ahead. We intend to meet again in February continue organizing for this work. The efforts, some running in parallel, will be organized into four phases.
- Completion of design details and navigation of logistics
- Adoption of recommendations from the Design & Implementation Team by each presbytery and the Synod’s Mission & Ministry Commission (or the Synod Assembly)
- Approval process by the General Assembly (or GA Mid-council Commission)
- Begin life in our new Missional Communities
