Events

Each year, there will be three primary events: the Fall Cohort Retreat (Cohort members only), the Spring Retreat (open to all), and Continuing Education (open to all). Check back here regularly for the most up-to-date information on our events.

Early Career and Senior Clergy Cohort

The Early Career and Senior Career Clergy Cohort brings together early career clergy (second through seventh year) with senior career clergy (more than ten years in ministry). During this Fall Retreat, senior career clergy will be trained in mentoring while early career clergy conduct self-assessments. This two-day event will include worship, breakout sessions, and plenary speakers.

Fall 2019 Cohort Retreat

Fall 2019 is focusing on bold ministry in the 21st century by addressing “hot topic” issues. We’ll hear from clergy who are active in the LGBTQI community and the Poor Peoples Campaign. We’ll look at what it means to have a Safe Sanctuary. We’ll ask clergy to better understand their call as a call for deep and wide inclusion. This opening session will set the stage for our cohorts and will live into the IECCD’s call to prepare clergy for sustainable and bold ministry.
