This is the final event in our series on Marks of Ministry that are highly correlated with Congregational Vitality. The last mark is:  "the ability to lead and encourage ministries of evangelism, service, stewardship and social transformation.” We’re bringing: 

Rev. Kristina Lizardy-Hajbi, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Analytics, Research and Data (CARD) of the UCC 

Rev. Lizardy-Hajbi is author of Congregational Vitality and Ministerial Excellence: Intersections and Possibilities for Ministry, the report upon which our series of learning events has been based. She’ll help congregational leaders, lay and authorized, engage the question: What kind of impact do we want to have as a congregation, and what would it take to get us there?”
