The Rev. David C. Schoen, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, serves part time as minister of church closure and legacy for CB&LF. As such, he researches and provides resources to churches that are facing the difficult but faithful decision to close and leave a lasting missional legacy.
Throughout his ministry in the UCC, Schoen has worked to nurture and develop local congregations. He was responsible for the publication of the “Living Legacy: Church Legacy and Closure” resource in 2015.
“I celebrate CB&LF’s historic and present commitment to the development of missional congregations that make a difference in their communities and world," David says.
