We are excited to announce the launch of 4 pilot Leaders Circles within Ecclesia. Leaders Circles are a new effort to increase the connectivity and support of the pastors and staff among the churches in our network. So many of us are working in unique situations in a particular area, but there is great affinity in our particular call with others across the country. Leaders Circles gather around a monthly phone call with others in similar ministry situations and settings. They are for encouragement, support, and shared learning. They specifically are not coaching, discipleship, or mentoring (though some of these things may naturally occur).
Pilot leaders circles are being launched for women in pastoral leadership, solo pastors, and pastors involved in multi-staff churches. So far, they are off to a great start and we hope to start more in the near future. Stay tuned or let us know if you are interested!
