Here’s what people are saying:

“This is a convenient, practical way to gain essential information for new and veteran vestry members.” – Bishop Kirk Smith, Episcopal Diocese of Arizona

“I heartily recommend these courses, as they bring renewed focus to the significant ministry of Vestry members, based on the principle that spiritually vital congregations grow with spiritually engaged leaders (clergy and lay). Thanks be to God for this focus on the call of Vestry members to be spiritual leaders, helping Vestry members to experience service on the vestry as sustaining and nourishing.” – The Rev. Jay Sidebotham, Director of RenewalWorks

“I know of no better way to equip both new and veteran vestry leaders with the essential information and skills needed to serve their congregations than the four classes that result in the ChurchNext Certificate in Vestry Leadership.” – Scott Stoner, Living Compass
