    news article

    Legacy Ministry website has launched

    April 26, 2016 / By UNY Communications / .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    The Legacy Ministry website is now available. The website will introduce people to Legacy Ministry and what it’s about so they can see if it is something they want to explore.

    Legacy Ministry seeks to help congregations that are “having trouble staying in operation and who express that they’re having trouble extending their mission and ministry” determine in which direction the congregation should move – whether it should keep its doors open or decide to close.

    The Legacy Consultation Team (LCT) is available to assist congregations at uncertain crossroads seeking their future in an uncertain world. While it does not make decisions, the team does offer guidance, insight, and support as the congregation discerns its future.

    “As we look at ways that congregations can use their energy and resources and potential, Legacy Ministry can help those who are having difficulty with that and help them find new ways that they can use their resources,” said the Rev. Marino, retired, Binghamton District LCT representative.

    Rev. Marino said the most helpful elements of the website include the description of Legacy Ministry and the LCT, an outline of the consultation process, and contact information for each district LCT representative.

    For more information, please visit the Legacy Ministry website.
