Essential Church Learning Community

This is rare opportunity for senior level church leaders to think out loud with like-minded leaders…and even to be challenged as iron sharpens iron.

Join us for our two sessions in 2022: February 15-16 and September 20-21 at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO. This February we will have conversations around the topic on the reality that the private personal life of a pastor matters. For pastors that finish well, they discover practices, habits, and disciplines in order to position themselves in their private world to finish well.
