INVITING SENIOR AND LEAD PASTORS AGES 50 AND YOUNGER to a special time of strengthening and equipping in spiritual life and calling.
REFRESHER is designed to help pastors reaffirm their identity, calling, and purpose while enjoying deep, authentic fellowship with other pastors on similar journeys. Filled with great discussions, personal coaching, and practical teaching, it will be an invaluable time to reignite your passion for ministry!
Some of the discussion topics may include:
Identity: Who are YOU? What defines YOU as a person? How does your position in Christ form your true identity? What does it mean to live out our lives in Christ in relationship to others?
Coaching: What are YOU called to do? How would you describe your vision? What is the Biblical vision of every pastor? How can YOU implement that vision?
Discipleship: How do we fulfill the great commission and make disciples, organically? What is a primary and very effective way of doing organic discipleship with the entire congregation?
