Exploring Call (Virtual Gathering)


Are you considering a new call? Pastor Church Resources will be hosting a workshop for pastors who may be asking questions such as: “Is it time to make a change? Is God calling me to a new season of ministry in my current setting? Might my next season of ministry be outside of the church?”

Rev. Zach Olson, Ministry Consultant with PCR, will lead two versions of this workshop in January and February of 2022. Each workshop is geared toward bringing you together with pastors who are asking similar questions, providing you with exercises and assessments that bring clarity to your discernment process, and sharing wisdom from other pastors who’ve worked through this as well. 

There are two options for participating in this workshop: 

  1. The “Intensive” experience is a retreat-style gathering meeting for two consecutive afternoons from 12:30 to 5:00 pm EST in January 2022.
  2. The “Cohort” experience is a slower-paced learning community that will meet weekly on Tuesdays from 12:30 to 2:30 pm EST in February 2022.

Both versions will be virtual and will use the same material. When registering, please select the workshop version that suits you best.
