The webinar will feature "candid discussion about leading an established church through the process of renewing itself without dishonoring the past or the people who still find meaning in it," according to an announcement. Presenter is Roger Shenk, pastor of Bahia Vista Mennonite Church in Sarasota, Fla., a 60-year-old church that in 2009 began to take bold yet thoughtful steps in revitalizing its approach to ministry.
