As we led Pastors and Spouses gatherings across
Canada, we asked clergy what would
help them the most to survive and thrive in daily
ministry. Many pastors agree - they'd value a mentoring relationship with experienced
In response, CCN is exploring the idea of
creating mentoring relationships between senior
pastors and those newer to ministry.
This is where you come in! We're looking for experienced pastors (approximately
10 years or more in the ministry) interested in sharing some
of their life and insight with other pastors.
The mentoring relationship specifics are flexible to suit the needs of the pastors involved! It could involve email correspondence between
you and your mentoree, regularly scheduled phone
calls or meetings a few times a year.
don't want to overburden mentors and yet
we want them to be able to give an amount
of time that is useful to their mentoree. For these new pastors are seeking encouragement, support, as
well as practical advice on various aspects of
ministry life (e.g., time management, conflict in the
church, family life, etc).
Do you have any practical suggestions and thoughts on how this might best work for all involved? Are you interested in becoming a mentor? Please contact us at [email protected]
We appreciate your prayers as
we move toward this goal.
