We’re convinced that this is truly one of the most exciting times to be in ministry. God’s disruption of what we’ve long known ministry to be is simultaneously God’s creation of new opportunities for imagination, creativity, connection, innovation, and deep faithfulness. And that’s why we believe you’re worth the investment! Yes, you’ll benefit in various ways from being connected to the TMC network through a cohort and other avenues, but more importantly, we will all be a part of something much bigger than cohorts; we’ll be sharing in God’s mission to reconcile, restore, and redeem the world in surprising and unanticipated ways.
When you join a cohort, you’re joining a sustained community of support, resourcing, and relationship that can last a lifetime. We truly believe that.
Right now, we’re offering several different types of peer-learning cohort opportunities:
- A two-year facilitated cohort (with a third-year option) of 8-15 clergy that is based in the same geographic location and is intentionally diverse theologically, racially, and gender-wise. These cohorts provide a comprehensive cohort experience in which deep bonds are formed and mutually instructive relationships are nurtured. For many, it’s nothing short of transformative. It results in life-long relationships, support, and a network of resources.
- A six-month facilitated virtual cohort that is not geographically based, providing for more flexibility for participants in terms of location and time commitment. These cohorts are likewise a combination of support, resourcing, and building deeper, long-term capacity for equipping ministry.
- A six-to-eight week facilitated “sprint” cohort that is not geographically based and typically focuses on a specific theme that pastors value. See examples of recent sprint cohorts.
