Early Career and Senior Career 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). The cohorts will consist of three to four early-career clergy paired with one senior career clergy mentor.

The cohorts will be formed at the annual Fall Retreat. Here, senior career clergy will be trained in mentoring while early-career clergy are reminded of their call. This two-day event will include worship, workshops, self-assessments, and relationship building activities.

Cohorts will meet on their own twice more throughout the year. By filling out a scholarship, the IECCD is willing to fund one cohort event per year.

​For members of the Cohort, all travel expenses, lodging, and registration for the Fall Retreat, Spring Retreat, and any continuing education is supported through a generous grant from the Lilly Endowment.
