Congregational Transformation Team

The Congregational Transformation Ministry Team (CTMT) of the Presbytery of Western New York has been asked to develop ways for congregations to discover and describe what they understand to be their God-directed mission, and to provide resources to those congregations willing to engage in a process to transform them from what they are now to what they could be if their institutional life were to better reflect the priorities that flow from their mission.

While we, the members of the CTMT, have explored multiple strategies to accomplish congregational transformation, we believe it is the work of each congregation to discern where God might lead the congregation now and in the future. This journey is one of faith, hope and, let’s face it, practical considerations which, we believe, require prayerful consideration and planning.
