Center for Pastoral Effectiveness of the Rockies

In all family systems, especially the church, when anxiety goes up it’s the most reactive who want to call the shots. That’s because the church is an emotional system and not a technical one.  This is not easy stuff.  Since 1999 clergy have attended The Center for Pastoral Effectiveness seeking to be healthy vital leaders in that emotional system.  Find out why over 1200 clergy describe the Center as “the most valuable continuing education experience.”
