Ohio Conference has two opportunities for leadership enrichment and development beginning in September. The first, a Thriving in Ministry cohort, is for pastors who are already serving in a congregation. It will run from September 2021 to April 2022 and will focus on the well-being of pastors, effective practices in ministry, and leadership development. Please see the description of the program and the schedule for more information.
The other opportunity is AMBS’s Journey Missional Leadership Development Program, designed for those in a congregation who might be exploring a call to pastoral ministry or have just begun pastoral ministry with minimal ministerial education. The three-year program is completed mostly online, but it also includes two weekend learning retreats each year and the assignment of a mentor to walk alongside the participant. For more details, see the program flier below. Ohio Conference offers scholarships to participants.
If you or anyone from your congregation might have an interest in either of these programs, please contact Conference Minister Dick Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org or (937) 935-2549.
