Pastors Gathering at Amigo Centre November 8-10 provided opportunity for retreat, fellowship, and resourcing. The gathering included worship, led by conference staff, and reflective conversations, led by the Leadership Enhancement Team. Resourcing times included a webinar provided by WellSpan EAP on compassion fatigue and self-care and Becky Helmuth led a workshop on navigating conflict during Covid.
Search Guides, a face for conference during pastoral transitions, offer presence and wisdom as they meet regularly with congregational search committees. A refresher meeting for our volunteer guides on November 19 will be led by Malinda Berry, Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary professor, and Sharon Yoder.
Leadership Enhancement team recently held a Congregational Coach seminar led by David Boshart, president of AMBS.
