Ordering the Pastor & Parish Curriculum

To complete the program, your staff/pastor-parish relations committee will need a Pastor & Parish Planning Kit and multiple copies of the Pastor & Parish Participant Workbook (one per person).

Should you wish to order additional copies of the Pastor & Parish Video Series (DVD) or Facilitator Guide, these also are available for individual purchase.

Pastor & Parish Planning Kit

Each planning kit contains three items: the Pastor & Parish video series on DVD, the facilitator guide, and the participant workbook. Use the planning kit to evaluate the Pastor & Parish program, or round out your order with additional participant workbooks, and you’ll have everything you need to complete the Pastor & Parish curriculum with your committee.

Pastor & Parish Participant Workbook

The participant workbook features questions to guide your committee in considering how the concepts introduced through the Pastor & Parish video series can be applied within your local church. Use it to deepen your committee’s ministry and its relationships with your pastor and your congregation.

Pastor & Parish Video Series (DVD)

The video series features an overview of the Pastor & Parish curriculum and six video segments - one per session - to guide your group through the core concepts of the series. Narrated by the Rev. Ed Moore, an ordained elder and former pastor and district superintendent in the Baltimore-Washington Conference of the United Methodist Church, each segment also includes commentary by other United Methodist clergy and laity.

Pastor & Parish Facilitator Guide

The facilitator guide includes a step-by-step process for introducing your committee to the Pastor & Parish curriculum, along with tips and questions for eliciting candid and productive discussion during the six-session series.
