The role of pastor is one that has wonderful rewards as you see God at work. However, it can be incredibly demanding as you oversee and shepherd God’s people in our complex and fast- changing society. How can you ensure that your wellbeing and the wellbeing of your family is sustained in such a pressured role? How does the wisdom of scripture bear upon the way you lead and manage in your church? The seminars in the ‘Pastors Network’ are designed to tackle these questions head-on by applying the wisdom of proverbs to these issues and by drawing on the experience of Godly leaders from across the world who are attending the conference. Prior preparation will be set for all applicants.

Upcoming network meet-ups and events

A number of meet-ups and webinars for the Pastors Network are being arranged for the coming year. The hope is that these will offer an opportunity for encouragement and follow-through on some of the topics raised at the EQUIP 2018 forum.

Watch this space for more details in the coming weeks.

You’d be very welcome to attend the Network meet-ups and webinars, whether you were able to join us at EQUIP 2018 or not. If you’d like to come, or would like to bring others from your church with you, then please sign-up to join the network and we can send you more details and ensure that we reserve a space for you and your group.

This network stream will help you to:

  • You will use the wisdom from proverbs to influence the way you lead and manage in very practical ways
  • You will better understand your personality and the way these traits affect your wellbeing and the wellbeing of those around you – you are ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’
  • You will learn from successful leaders from across the world who have years of experience in very different contexts
  • You will also have the opportunity to meet with other pastors, share ideas and experiences and pray for one another.
