Advancing Pastoral Leadership
Created out of a deep concern for the mission of the church to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, the goal of the program is to assist emerging clergy leaders in developing their capacity for fruitful leadership.
The life of the clergyperson is a journey of renewal and excellence in Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul gives us the essence of this journey in Philippians when he invites us to focus on spiritual disciplines and to focus on the things of excellence as we journey.
REFRESH is a space created by the Texas Annual Conference Center for Clergy Excellence to honor clergypersons every fifth year of their ministry, and encourages moments of reflection, resourcing and rejoicing through peer mentoring, coaching and other experiences.
The Texas Annual Conference of United Methodist Church is committed to providing a safe, respectful, and nurturing environment in keeping with God’s sacred trust.
