A Courage & Renewal Retreat

Courage to Lead® for Young Clergy & Community Innovators
A 6-month Courage & Renewal® Retreat Series

Opening Retreat: January 10-13, 2017
Closing Retreat: June 7-10, 2017
With Monthly Peer Calls

Are you committed to faith work, but trying to sustain yourself in the midst of institutional tensions, relational expectations, and the internal pressure you feel to make a difference? Courage to Lead® for Young Clergy and Community Innovators offers a rare opportunity to renew, reflect, and reconnect with what matters most to your vocation. 

Over the course of two in-person gatherings and monthly peer calls,
this Courage & Renewal retreat series provides the opportunity to:

  • Slow down and disconnect from the busy pace of ministry life
    so that you can hear the voice of God within.
  • Witness and be witnessed to, listen and be listened to by kindred
    peers in the field—without performance evaluation, statusizing,
    or ego.
  • Name the “leadership moment” you’re in and investigate,
    talk through, and honor both struggles and successes while
    discerning a way forward.
  • Learn new skills for strengthening the capacity to ask open-ended
     questions, hold tensions, and build relational trust.

This program is for you whether you are a young leader in a church or faith-based nonprofit or one who is discerning a ministry path outside of institutional settings, such as artists, activists, entrepreneurs, & organizers. Participants will primarily include but not be limited to those ages 40 and under. 

This is a cohort experience. Therefore, your committed participation is important for others in the cohort as well as yourself. Before applying, we strongly encourage you to consider what arrangements can be made to care for your congregation/ministry setting and your other responsibilities that will cover both the day-to-day needs as well as any emergencies that may arise.
