An Affinity Group for nearly and newly retired clergy!

An invitation and opportunity for nearly and newly retired clergy to gather together for engagement on the topic of retirement and fellowship with other clergy navigating these 'new waters' of life transition. The first presentation will be with Rev. Dr. Bruce Epperly about navigating retirement based on the research he conducted on clergy retirement and his resulting book, The Jubilee Years: Embracing Clergy Retirement. This opportunity is a chance to gather with others at this life-stage in a series of 7 sessions, each addressing a relevant topic. We will gather and explore meaningful service in retirement, ways to navigate spiritual and emotional changes, new ways to kindle and sustain joy, financial stability, and spiritual well-being. Each session will have a guest presenter who brings a unique viewpoint on the topic from their own knowledge and experience to enable the cohort to openly explore some aspect of the retirement journey. The sessions will be hosted by the staff of the Center for Transformational Leadership.

Our former participants have said:
“I wasn't sure that this program would meet my needs. I quickly realized that journeying into retirement with a community of colleagues mirrors the advice I have received and shared throughout over 40 years of ministry. Isolation is often the enemy of growth and stretching. The leaders were well prepared and very relevant.”  

“For me, the break-out rooms and discussions with other retired clergy always feel the most meaningful and helpful.”  

“I felt that our time was very well organized, and the agenda kept me engaged and was well paced.”  

“I am so grateful the conference created this opportunity. It is so helpful to walk hand in hand with others through the ever-changing chapters of life. This is a valuable tool to help make our lives fruitful and faithful over time.”
