John Cionca is a great resource for the church. I have worked with him as an interim pastor, a search consultant, teacher and coach. In all areas I have found experience, wisdom, compassion and a deep desire for the church to be effective and relevant in a changing culture. I highly recommend Ministry Transitions!
Tiger McLuen, President, Youth Leadership
John Cionca's leadership was invaluable to us as we embarked on a period of transition at Colonial Church. A masterful listener and leader, he smoothed our passage from one senior minister to the next. His experience with many varied congregations makes him a valuable resource for any church seeking growth and renewal.
Carolyn Meyer, Moderator, Colonial Church of Edina
John Cionca helped me to sort through my reasons and motives for change at a very important intersection of my life. He is a trusted friend and mentor to those desirous of navigating change with faith and confidence.
The Rev. David Trautman, Westwood Church, Chanhassen
John Cionca not only delivered what he promised, he delivered more. We have found his work to be on-point and very practical. Additionally, he did it within budget and on-time. He performed his services and presented his observations in a professional and gracious manner. The ultimate test would be if we would use him again -- the answer is a resounding 'yes.'
Mr. Joe Colliani, Chairman, Ridgewood Church, Minnetonka, MN
John Cionca has an established track record of helping churches find spiritual foundations, develop creative ministries, and overcome debilitating obstacles. He is adept at combining insight with clear guidance, and humor with serious prescriptions!
Dr. Leland V. Eliason, Executive Vice President and Dean, Bethel Seminary
I believe it was by God’s grace that we connected with Ministry Transitions and John Cionca. We had been under the leadership of one pastor for 19 years, so when faced with transition we had no idea what to do.
