Dueck begins as denomination’s director for Transforming Practices.

Stan Dueck began April 6 as director for Transforming Practices in the Church of the Brethren’s Congregational Life Ministries. The director for Transforming Practices is a new position created as part of a redesign of Congregational Life Ministries.

The plan for Congregational Life Ministries includes a staff configuration with four director-level positions: Transforming Practices, Intercultural Ministries, Spiritual Life and Discipleship, and Youth and Young Adult Ministries. The director for Transforming Practices will focus on helping leaders of congregations and other groups influence change, expand mission, cultivate evangelism, and assist the church through the process of transformation. The director will emphasize building capacity for leadership and developing networks to exchange services and resources throughout the denomination.

Dueck had served as a member of the Congregational Life Team since June 14, 1999, when he was hired as Congregational Life Team staff for Area 1. He brings skills as a strategic consultant for vision and mission, reorganization, leadership development, and cultivating healthy systems. A strength of his work has been the ability to help the church understand what is happening in the North American context through an evangelical Anabaptist perspective, and then to utilize that knowledge to connect to and express faith, history, and journey. He is an ordained minister.
