Our Blogs

The staff, volunteer leaders, and consultants of the Southern Region offer several blogs to offer insight into congregational life:

  • Staff blog: the Congregational Life staff members offer blog posts on a rotating schedule for our newsletter.
  • Communications Task Force blog: news about the evolution of regional collaboration, offered to inform delegates about the vote to dissolve district governance in April, 2015, and congregational and cluster leaders about the relationships taking shape throughout the region.
  • Stewardship/GIFT blog: Bill Clontz, our regional stewardship consultant, gives pro tips for congregational stewardship volunteers, and explains GIFT, the Southern Region's pilot funding program, which replaced the APF.
  • Leaders' Resources: this blog was developed after the 2014 Presidents' Convocations to help board members and congregational leaders get their bearings when assuming a new role.
