Bold Leadership Development Cohort

BOLD LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT Cohort

The Bold Leadership Development Cohort brings together early career clergy (second through ninth year) with senior clergy career coaches and spiritual directors. Cohort clergy will be assessed to identify their strengths, challenges and goals. Coaches and spiritual directors will walk along side Cohort members to provide guidance and help them build strong, sustainable and successful ministries.. Special attention will be given to Clergy wellness and spiritual and mental well-being. Cohort members will work on developing the leadership skills and tools through 1:1 sessions, continuing education, retreats and workshops.

This 11-month Cohort is completely free of charge. 

The Center For Bold Leadership’s (formerly the Institute for Early Career Clergy Development) Leadership Cohort program is now accepting applications for its next Cohort. This Cohort program is designed to support clergy of all denominations in their 2nd through 9th year in pastoral ministry. Rural and small-member church pastors are especially encouraged to apply.

The Cohort includes:

 

  • 1:1 Clergy Coaching
  • Spiritual Direction
  • Classes & Workshops
  • Retreats
  • Book study
  • Wellness Coaching

Our goal is to help early-career clergy become their best by providing the necessary practical tools they need to successfully navigate the joys and challenges of pastoral ministry.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: November 30, 2022

 

The Cohort is a gift from God to early career clergy regardless of age. The access to advisors and mentors are invaluable. It provides a space for not only continuing education to gain new and practical skills but gives clergy who are weary to reinvent themselves and re-imaging their understanding of living into their ministerial calling
