Join the Inaugural Pastoral Formation Group

This is a small group of up to 6 people journeying for 6 months to discover new ways of being.

Pastoral ministry can be difficult and, as we have learned, seminary or Bible college didn't teach us everything.

I have been teaching in colleges, universities, and ministry schools and have discovered the gaps in traditional pastoral ministry education. This course will help you fill the gaps through teachings, reflective exercises, and community.

This interactive group is on ZOOM.

Sessions will be 2x a month from July 2024 through December 2024.

The exact dates will be determined by the members of the group.

Space is limited so sign up today!
