Navigating Transition with Progressive Faith Communities

The CruX is a program for progressive congregations in northern New England facing significant changes in how they will embody their mission. It is a collaboration of The Maine Conference UCC, Renewal in the Wilderness, and The BTS Center.

Congregations and spiritual communities are faced with the need to adapt to new realities which include increased reliance on part-time ministers with changing roles. Anxiety and concern about the future of congregational life is high, and progressive faith communities are facing key decision points. To provide context and tools to navigate these changes and traditions Renewal in the Wilderness is working with progressive faith communities to offer a series of online learning modules and in-person wilderness trips to locations in Maine during the summer and fall 2018.
