"The Joy of Congregational Life"
October 23, 2013

This panel was collected as part of a series on “Joy” presented in honor of the retirement of President Phil Amerson.  This panel is comprised of innovative and experience practitioners in the field of ministry.  They are asked to address two essential questions:  “How have you personally found joy in the work of pastoral ministry that might exemplify for a new generation the worthiness of this call as something to which one might devote one’s life?”  And “In what ways (or not) is this notion of joy compatible with the continuing professionalization of pastoral ministry and with the church’s increasing focus on quantitative measures of pastoral effectiveness?”  Their thoughtful responses and creative approaches are informative and illustrative of the potential for joy in a calling to ministry.
