Vital Partnerships Spring 2024

March 2 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Churches come in all forms of vitality: some are healthy and growing, others are maintaining the status quo, and some are declining. But they all have one thing in common: they want to be fruitful and healthy. One way this can happen is through partnerships or mergers. Attend this workshop and explore new ways your church might become healthier through a merger.


Speaker Bio: Dirk Elliott is the retired Director of Congregational Vibrancy and Leadership Development for the Michigan Conference. Dirk has been a congregational developer for 21 years after serving 18 years in pastoral ministry. He serves on the Path 1 Strategy Team, the New Church Start division of the United Methodist Church. Dirk authored “Vital Merger: A New Church Approach that Joins Church Families Together to Change Lives and Communities.”
