We know that the first year of any relationship is a transition period  and that brings a need for commitment to learn, compromise, and adapt.  Merging congregations must commit to these three steps.  Holy Cow! Consulting has created a map for these steps and we have integrated our tools to help bring congregations clarity as they go through this process. This process is called Emerge© for Merging Congregations.   The word emerge means to come forth or arise.  Perhaps more profoundly emerge is a verb, it is movement. It is the act of arising. 

Emerge happens in three stages: 

Step One:  Discernment – The Stage of Learning
Step Two: Transition – The Stage of Compromise and Adaptation
Step Three: Resolution – The Stage of Emerging
