Pastoral Help

Can you think of any relationships in your very public life where you can share personal failure and know that it is totally safe? If you are in personal financial, moral or relational crises, where do you go to find needed support and resources? Are you reconsidering your “call to ministry,” or perhaps just needing to hear a fresh word from God?

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction is also an available resource for pastors/staff who have a desire to grow closer to God by recognizing God’s presence and voice in every area of life. Spiritual Directors offer the gift of “holy listening” in a setting of prayer and confidentiality. Trained spiritual directors are available to pastors in the Midwest Conference at no cost.

  • Do you ever feel alone in ministry?
  • Do you wonder if ministry colleagues experience the same ministry challenges? Or have similar doubts about personal competency?
  • Have you ever wished for a spiritual/ministry friend with whom you could share ideas and resources?
  • When was the last time anyone offered to sit quietly to listen and then pray for you?

Networks (formerly “Clusters”)

Local peer Networks have been established in each region of the conference to provide a consistent listening environment of discernment and prayer. Networks meet on a regular basis to provide opportunities to know colleagues at a personal and professional level. Networks are dynamic and may change from time to time, depending on size, number and location of area pastors.
