Experienced United Methodist pastors are invited to a one-week intensive introduction to emerging best practices in ministry. Come to learn techniques and approaches from around the country - the practices that are helping pastors today to build successful churches for the new generation. The design of the conference will invite you into a learning community of your peers who come from a variety of places and kinds of ministry. You will experience the process of reflective practice, a powerful tool for continued learning. Follow-up to the conference will include online peer learning groups and two-day reunions in January.
