Pastoral Persistence: Cultivating Resilience in Ministry (September-October 2018)
Resilience is the ability to withstand and even thrive in the midst of stress. Potential stressors are legion in ministry, making it essential to cultivate resilience if we are to lead at a high level over the long term.

This three-session course will cover three key areas of resilience in ministry: leading with authenticity, dealing with feedback, and tending to joy. Participants will come away with a clearer understanding of their specific call and leadership style, a plan for setting up helpful feedback systems and learning from criticism, and a strategy for ongoing self-care. The format will be part teaching, part group coaching, and the course will take place on the Zoom platform.

In addition to the three-part course, your registration fee covers three one-hour individual coaching sessions to help you further customize and apply what you're learning. You can schedule these individual sessions at times convenient to you.

The church as a whole and your congregation in particular need your gifts and your voice. Make sure you’re able to offer them for a long time to come by building up your resilience. Space is limited, so sign up now.

Grace and peace,
Laura Stephens-Reed, Clergy Coach
