Well, there’s this word in front of my title--Consulting—Consulting Lifespan Faith Development Director. There’s some freight that goes with that word, and in case you don’t know what that is, I’d best tell you. For starters, it means that I might only journey with you for two years; but because it is consulting, it could be longer. It means I am here to do something for you besides manage your Faith Development program. It means I will do things and go some places here you might not expect to find a religious educator to be involved in at all. I am a Change Agent—a Church Whisperer.
I am not here just to run your Faith Development Programs until you find someone else. I bring a much bigger portfolio to this Special Place. Here is what I must do for you in this consulting—this interim—role:
It’s a fragile, fun, and sustaining space, this Interim period. “What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?” Let’s find out together.
See you in church.
Steven Mead, Religious Educator
