This program will include two clergy cohorts with five PTLPs each who meet monthly with a Cohort Coach for six months, from August 2021-January 2022. The learning objectives of this Cohort experience are:
The Leadership Development Area of the Mountain Sky Conference will cover 65% of the cost of this pilot coaching program. Each participant and the church/charge they serve will cover the remaining portion of the registration fees. The cohort will use the Mountain Sky Ministry Crossroads platform as a meeting space, and each participant will be given a link to join the private cohort upon invitation.
The cost of participation in this PTLP Clergy Cohort is $49.99 for the clergy and $50 for the church/charge. The study book listed above will be paid for by the Leadership Development area and sent to the participant when registration is complete.
