Beginning in ministry or a new pastoral charge situation comes with unique challenges and opportunities. In this webinar participants will reflect with others who are in their first years of ministry or starting in a new pastoral charge. We will share experiences and have opportunity to process emerging issues in the participant's setting. In addition to brainstorming, support and reflection, the importance of establishing or strengthening spiritual practices that nurture and support ministry, will be introduced.
