In this New Year, we felt our regular Pastor/Church Professional meetings needed a makeover. So, we will be scheduling some of them around the various ways that people serve - retired pastors, pastors with children, pastors currently serving, people in validated ministries, etc. OR we may designate a meeting with topics that we think pastors might enjoy 'chewing' on together such as "The Pulpit and Politics Balancing Act"; "Social Media - the perils and the blessing;" "Regrouping when you're down and out in ministry" and others, including ones that you suggest. All of the meetings will be very relaxed, advice free unless advice is requested, not strictly focused on the topic of the day, and a time to enjoy and get to know one another.
Take note of the two February meetings:
Friday, February 12th at 10am for our retired pastors
Wednesday February 24th at 1pm for all Pastors/Church Professionals with the light-hearted topic "My most embarrassing moment in ministry or things in worship that went horribly wrong, but turned out allright"
