Courage to Lead for young adult deacons

Deacons —  December 16, 2014

The Center for Courage & Renewal invites young United Methodist clergy (deacons and elders age 35 and younger) to apply for “Courage to Lead for Young United Methodist Ministers: A 6-Month Leadership Intensive for Faith Leaders to Renew, Reflect and Reconnect.”

This Courage to Lead Intensive offers young faith leaders a rare opportunity to listen to God, connect deeply with committed peers, engage significant questions, and build their capacities for sustainable leadership over the long haul. Three separate cohorts across the country will meet in the Atlanta, Milwaukee and Denver areas for opening and closing retreats focusing on “Leading from Within” and “Habits of the Heart for Healthy Ministry.” Between retreats, small groups of five will engage in once-a-month facilitated Peer Learning Calls to deepen the learning and integrate principles and practices into their faith journeys and ministry contexts.

Courage to Lead for Young United Methodist Minsters is open to young clergy serving United Methodist congregations or in another ministry setting. The cohorts will primarily consist of, but not be limited to, men and women ages 35 and under. They are using an application process to allow us to convene dynamic and diverse cohorts, specifically attending to a diversity of ministry settings, race, gender and geographic representation. Applications are due by January 16, 2015.
