Leader Cohorts

MINISTRY OF THRIVING

These leadership cohorts are a setting to reinforce learnings from the Academy. It is both a place to pursue the spiritual formation journey with safe allies as well as offer just-in-time peer-coaching to one another. We also want to foster and curate relational connections between leaders throughout San Diego. Listening and supporting each other creates a sense of abundance and belonging. Fresh ideas are shared and a deeper connection to callings is fostered in solidarity as leaders wrestle with similar challenges.

You can also read about how we are trying to resource pastors, church planters, and other congregational leaders. Our model of ministerial resilience prescribes supporting ministers in both personal and professional competencies.

DETAILS

Day: 1st and 3rd Monday of the month.

Time: 11:00a-12:15a

Mode: By Zoom, unless we decide occasional in person instances would be desirable.

DESCRIPTION

The Vision (The “what” that guides us)

We long to be the body of Christ faithfully inhabiting our collective vocation to seek the shalom of our city.

Our Hope (…that we have for ourselves)

That we can become the kind of leaders that resemble Jesus in as many ways and in as many places as possible, but particularly in our vocation as ministerial leaders.

Our Intention (…or the actions we will take to connect our hope to the vision)

We intend to grow into maturity in Christ (personal growth) and to grow in our leadership capacity (professional growth). We meet to support our collective wellbeing and resilience. We meet to strengthen our collective redemptive influence as the church in our city.

The Norms:

In our effort to lead our organizations to flourish the city in cooperation with the body of Christ: We will meet bi-monthly to learn, encourage, exhort, and support one another, endeavoring to create an environment where the Spirit can transform us with the gospel. We aim to be a place where we are learning how to let the gospel transform us so that we can be a redemptive presence wherever we are. We aim to be a place where we are learning fresh competencies to lead our respective ministries in this adaptive moment.

This group aspires to be characterized by:

  • A deep sense of care and belonging… offered imperfectly.
  • Honest questions and non-judgmental responses… more often than not.
  • Good theology and intellectual rigor… thanks to good resources.
  • As much transparency and vulnerability, one is willing to muster… where both too

    much and not enough of it is treated with grace and patience.

  • Exploration and curiosity more than declaration and prescription… unless it

    comes from the Lord.

  • Honoring each person’s story/journey with confidentiality… no exceptions.
  • Not conquering or consuming content, but letting the gospel conquer us.

Revisit commitment each year.

The Means:

We will study books by great authors – but we aren’t a book study/discussion group. We may study books of the bible – but we won’t be a bible study per se. Our focus will hover around themes of spiritual formation and vocation/calling.

Next book: Spiritual Direction: Wisdom for the Long Walk of Faith, Henri Nouwen with Michael J. Christensen and Rebecca J. Laird.

We will also be available to help one another through just-in-time peer-coaching. We hope to support one another in our efforts to lead our organizations to form whole-life disciples faithfully present in our city.
