Appreciative Inquiry

For Lead Pastors

I want to invite you to have a face-to-face meeting with me this Fall for something that I’m calling an “Appreciative Inquiry.” My hope from our conversation is that I’d be able to hear your heart to understand how the District Office can best serve you and provide you with whatever lift you need.

Throughout the Fall, I’ll be traveling to several different cities and towns throughout our district so that you don’t have to drive too far to meet me. I don’t want you to panic if you cannot make a date/region listed. I’m committed to meet every lead pastor who wants to meet.

The easiest way to book a time to meet with me is by clicking the “Make an Appointment” button.

If you have any questions, you can email me at

For All Other Credential Holders

District Superintendent Gary Taitinger is taking these next number of weeks to spend some time with the lead pastors of the ABNWT District churches to hear the plans, the challenges and simply chat. It’s an “Appreciative Inquiry” exercise to talk about the past, the present and the future. He wants to hear from the team that makes up the ministry of the District in Alberta & the Northwest Territories.

Although Pastor Gary would love to meet with every one of you as a District PAOC credential holder and hear your story, it has some logistical challenges. So in an effort to provide an opportunity for all credential holders, Pastor Gary has asked if the new members of the District Leadership Team would take some time to meet on his behalf with you as groups of credential holders. He is inviting all credentialed pastoral staff, parachurch ministry staff, counselors, chaplains, itinerants, retired and inactive Credential Holders to meet with the DLT members for a couple of hours in either Edmonton or Calgary over the next two months. You will need to sign up for the particular session that would work for you. Every session will have a limited number of seats available, so click here to book your opportunity now to meet with the DLT members.

From Pastor Gary – “I really believe God is going to do something amazing in our churches and our District.

1 Samuel 14:6  … Maybe the Lord will help us; if he does, nothing can keep him from giving us the victory, no matter how few of us there are.”
