Individual and Collective Growth
Macedonian Ministry brings together a committed cohort of approximately 8-15 clergy for a period of three years. A carefully crafted curriculum addresses needs for personal pastoral growth, and develops strategies for leading dynamic and effective ministries. Under the leadership of a trained facilitator, these cohort groups engage in a spiritual journey of enrichment and rejuvenation that will have a positive and lasting impact.
Built on this missional foundation, the five pillars of our proven method are:
A cohort is a supportive learning community of practice and an incubator for developing leaders.
Facilitators plan and lead cohort activities, serving as a pastor to the pastors throughout their journey. Learn more
Styled for each individual cohort, our curriculum helps the cohort become a dynamic learning community. Learn more
Workshops provide opportunities for highly specialized learning, exploration, and enrichment beyond the core curriculum. Learn more
A Remarkable Journey of Faith
Once interest in a local cohort has been established, a thorough review process determines the best facilitator and helps select participating pastors. The group then follows the curriculum of the three-year program, engaging in monthly meetings with the group and the trained facilitator, as well as special events such as retreats, seminars, and a Holy Land pilgrimage. Once a cohort has completed its journey together, they remain connected through subsequent seminars and possible opportunities to serve in facilitator roles.
