Association Updates: September 2011

New Pastoral Cohort Forming
Pastors across the nation—Arizona, California, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio, and Vermont—are participating in an online pastoral cohort, hosted by GARBC representatives John Greening and Jim Vogel. This group of men, who share a common interest in quality pastoral ministry, are meeting together to exercise Bible-based critical thinking, analyze trends affecting pastors and churches, problem-solve using case studies, and pray for one another. A new pastoral cohort will begin in October. If you are interested in participating in the next eight-week session (75 minutes per session), e-mail John Greening.
