Pastoral Cohorts are made up of six pastors. They meet three times a year for a day and a half. The cohort cycles through five skills through facilitated discussion. The goal is to not only for pastors to engage with one another for mutual growth, whereby members of the cohort develop friendships to sustain pastoral health. These five skills are the result of a seven-year study on resilient pastoral ministry, the results of which are detailed in the book Resilient Ministry. The skills are: Spiritual Formation, Self Care, Emotional and Cultural Intelligence, Leadership and Management, Marriage and Family.
