Coming Together: Clergy Collegiality and Care

November 11, 2021

Encouraging WNC leaders to gather and to support one another

It’s been an exhausting 2 years for ministry leaders that has created anxiety and isolation for some. Many leaders are ready to join together with colleagues to share spiritual practices, find hope for what’s next, and to just BE together. 

You are encouraged to gather with a group of 3 or more Western North Carolina clergy or ministry professionals. You may choose to plan an outing, a meal, an overnight retreat, etc. You may also choose to include your families.

Each group is eligible for up to $200/clergy or ministerial professional participant to support the time together. Groups should be diverse. Make some new friends. Connect with people you haven’t seen for a while.

Please take appropriate COVID precautions.

Play, have fun, eat, share, connect

You might choose to utilize the Service of Loss, Lament, Healing and Hope for part of your gathering time. 

Two options are available for download: a digital version and a print version.

This is not intended for covenant groups that already exist. The bi-annual spiritual renewal funds may be used for Covenant Peer Groups to gather and grow. 

These gatherings are an offering of the WNC Leadership Development Team, Bishop, and Cabinet.  Funds provided through the generous giving of Western North Carolina churches through apportionment payments.
