Dear Friends,

As many of you may be aware, our Pastoral Relations system has changed. We have moved from Joint Needs Assessment to Mission Articulation Plan (MAP). This has been a very exciting change as we focus on our Mission and not on our need. The Joint Search Process follows a similar path with some differences. To work with pastoral charges through these two systems, we have trained liaisons to offer assistance. We are looking to train more liaisons to help with these processes.

Liaison Training is being offered and will take place via webinar:
• Mission Articulation Plan (MAP) – Wednesday, November 13, 2019, 7 pm – 9 pm
• Joint Search Process – Wednesday, November 20, 2019, 7 pm – 9 pm

If you are interested in being trained and can attend these evening webinar trainings, please respond to and/or
• Name
• Email
• Phone Numbers
• Pastoral Charge

Please consider this way to serve your Region.

Thank you.
