Are you 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?”

Pastor Church Resources will be hosting a virtual workshop for pastors who may be considering a new call⁠—or a new way to live out their call in their current church.

Rev. Zach Olson, Ministry Consultant with PCR, will lead two versions of this workshop in January and February of 2023. 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 virtual workshop: 

  1. The “Intensive” experience is a retreat-style gathering meeting for two consecutive afternoons from 12:30 to 5:00 pm EST on   January 24 and 25, 2023.

  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 2023.

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

Ben - thank you for your comments. As you mention, the current ministry landscape demands all those called into ministry to be discerning and wise in how they bring the Good News. This gathering creates space for that conversation. It's not only a gathering for pastors wondering if they should make a change (it is that, for sure). It's also for pastors who want to gain clarity on who God has been developing them to be so they can live more fully into their calling. I hope to see you at the gathering!
