CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES

Join a Coaching Cohort Group – Fall 2021
Group Cohort Coaching will provide leaders of children, youth, and families with an opportunity to reflect on their leadership, connect to other leaders, and be coached within their area of focus.  Coaching is based on thoughtful questions and the needs of the group, while providing time for personal growth.

This Fall there are 3 different opportunities – choose the one that fits you.

Beginning in Ministry
Starting September 10 meeting weekly on Fridays for 5 weeks ONLINE from 10-11 AM EST
If you are new to ministry this is a great opportunity to connect with others who are wrestling with similar realities.  All conversations will be based on the needs of leaders in a newer ministry situation.

Leader Self-Care
Starting September 13 and meeting bi-weekly on Mondays for 6 weeks ONLINE from 1-2 PM EST
Taking care of yourself as a leader has many challenges, but also has many benefits.  Journey with a small group of ministry leaders in identifying areas you can grow in your self-care while in ministry.

Get Creative 
IN-PERSON at ST. MARK’S UMC, Carmel – Sept. 20, Oct. 4, Nov. 1, Dec.13 – 11 AM-12:30 PM EST
We will be generating ministry ideas together.  Let’s share ideas, try some new ones out, figure out what has worked and what has not – together.  We will be focused on getting creative in our discipleship of children, youth, and families.
