Clergy Development

Pastoring Through the 3 D's

Date:  January 11, 2023
Location: Riverview Retreat Center at Pecometh
Cost: $25 for the one-day training; with Overnight Stay for $129/$179 Double/Single Occupancy

Churches are in Decline, Churches are Dying, and Churches are Disaffiliating. Clergy are leading congregations through incredibly difficult times.

This one-day program will focus on practical strategies for self-care and self-differentiation while pastoring a church through difficult transitions. Come just for the one-day training, or join us for dinner and an overnight stay on Tuesday night so that you are rested and ready to go when the retreat begins on Wednesday. 


Prepare/Enrich Facilitator Training

Date:  TBD
Location: Riverview Retreat Center at Pecometh

  • Training Participant: $195 (includes training materials and lifetime access to the Prepare/Enrich online assessment and materials)
  • Non-Participant Guest: $20 (includes lunch only). Guest registration is open to one person per training participant (for example, a spouse or partner), and to past training participants. 


Ministry Administration in Context

Date:  TBD
Location: Riverview Retreat Center at Pecometh
Cost: $239 double occupancy or $359 single occupancy

The ministry of administration can look very different from context to context. Gather with other clergy to review the basics of administration as defined by the Book of Discipline, and explore how ordering the life of the church may look different depending on:

  • Church membership size
  • Number of staff (or no staff)
  • Church structure and culture (established church vs new church start, etc)

Plus, we will offer a session about serving in extension ministry and appointments beyond the local church,  as well as how Deacons relate to the local church.
