Newly (or Recently) Credentialed Leaders Orientation

If you are a new or relatively new pastor or ministry leader within Lancaster Mennonite Conference, we invite you, your spouse, and bishop to participate in our annual orientation for newly (or recently) credentialed leaders, usually held on the third Wednesday in April.

Conference office staff offer this orientation to help pastors and other credentialed leaders become more fully connected to our shared life in Christ. We hope the orientation will encourage you as a leader in ministry and help you better understand Lancaster Conference and our shared vision.
Bishops, Conference staff, and other leaders will review several main topics:

  • Who we are as a conference (history, core values, vision and current priorities),
  • Where we are going as a Conference with 2020 Vision: We See New Life,
  • How we are organized (congregations, districts, conference office, agencies),
  • Resources to encourage and support leaders and congregations (including the Congregational Resource Center, Leadership Assistance Program, STEP).

Any credentialed leader who has not been to an orientation is strongly encouraged to attend. For more information, please contact Joselyn Santiago 717-293-5246 ext. 100, or Brinton Rutherford 717-293-5246 ext. 111,
