The Center for Vital Leadership Announces the Living Well Initiative
A seven-month program offers clergy the opportunity to take ministry to the next level
What do you do when you want to take your ministry to the next level? Working harder isn’t the answer. Even working smarter only takes you so far. The witness of faithful Christians over the ages has shown that time apart for reflection and renewal helps gain the needed perspective to see things differently and find the best way forward. The Living Well Program does just that.
The program is comprised of two retreats, September 21-23, at Camp Manidokan, and March 8-10, 2022, at West River Camp and Retreat Center, as well as monthly cohort meetings between the retreats to process their learnings and support each other throughout this journey.
Participants will engage in a seven-month program that will result in:
- A holistic understanding of their life and ministry.
- A deep connection with other clergy colleagues who have the same desire to serve faithfully and effectively.
- A personal development plan, which includes the steps they'd like to take to make an incremental and significant improvement in the aspects of life and ministry that they've identified during the program.
The $700 registration fee, matched by the Baltimore-Washington Conference covers the full cost of the two retreats, the seven-month journal and review instruments designed to create a personalized pastoral development plan. Scholarship funds are available.
Open to all clergy, both licensed and ordained. 3.3 CEUs will be offered.
