Opportunities outside of the NJ Synod

Revitalization and Diversity Resource Moderator (RDRM): RCA part time

The focus of the RDRM will be on connecting with and empowering individual congregations within the bounds of our Classis, helping them to respond to the need for revitalization by identifying and addressing root causes, such as a lack of demographic diversity, outdated
ministry practices, or visibility within the larger community. As these root causes of local decline are addressed, the RDRM will then equip congregations with new ministry tools, programs, and approaches that will help them to build again on this new foundation. By balancing local needs and resources with effective strategies, the RDRM will assist congregational leaders to identify and target emerging ministries or re-energize existing ministerial outreach efforts, and strengthen the bonds that connect us all by helping Classis to walk alongside member
congregations with even greater understanding and compassion.
