Event description

Description

A leadership cohort includes continuous learning, coaching, and accountability. If you join a leadership cohort the cohort becomes your compass group. You will not be assigned another compass group. We do not offer CEUs for the leadership cohorts but they can serve as continuing education for pastors.

For all of the following events, we ask that you please bring a packed lunch. A meal will not be provided and time to go out to get something will be limited.

There is no paying at the door for these events. All payments need to be made online through Eventbrite.

Cross-Racial, Cross Cultural

The Cross-Racial, Cross-Cultural Cohort is for ALL pastors who at times may feel like a "fish out of water". Do you serve a demographic that is different than your own sense of identity? Mayne you're a pastor of color serving a predominantly white congregation, may you're a young pastor serving an older congregation, or maybe you grew up in rural Ohio and find yourself in Cleveland. These kinds of appointments are made as a creative response to diversity in our church, but come with unique challenges. This Ochort can help you overcome some of those challenges.
