Online Training Series 2023

(in)Spire: A Fresh Start for the New Year

Date: Thursday, January 26, 2023 | 9:00am – 12:00pm

Hosts: Resurrection’s ShareChurch Ministry

“True to your word, you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.”
(Psalm 23:3, MSG)

Even under “normal” circumstances, the end of the year can be exhausting for ministry leaders, with unique demands that make it difficult to prepare for the year ahead. The experience of a global pandemic has only added to the complexity and challenges of leadership and self-care. Still, time marches on, and a new year is coming whether we are ready or not.

We get it, and we are ready to help. Start the new year with an infusion of encouragement, confidence, and clarity, by joining Dr. Rebeca Chow and Rev. Dr. Joshua Clough for a half-day of practical insights, tools and exercises that will get you pointed in the right direction and help you stay on course throughout the months ahead.

No matter your location or circumstances, this fully online event is for you. Come alone, or bring your partner, friends, or team. We can’t wait to help you re-group, re-charge and refresh – so you can face 2023 knowing you’ve got this, and you’re not alone!

This online training takes place from 9am-12pm Central Time, with 4 sessions focused on preparing you for the year ahead. Learn more in Session Descriptions.

In this session, we’ll set the stage for conversation about mental health, professional practices for effective ministry, and how to reconnect with self and God. Is your cup empty or full as you start the new year? We’ll talk about how to find inspiration again.

Catching Our Breath: Practices for Strong Mental Health

The normal flow of daily life includes many transitions from action to stillness. During this session, we’ll explore how our mental health is connected to experiences of danger, safety, and connection.

What People Are Saying

Thank you from a pastor in a rural town who truly appreciates the resources you are offering. Your resources lifted a load from my shoulders in a time when I needed one lifted. Thank you for your kindness; this pastor appreciates it. God bless you.

Brenda T.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  We are shifting so much to meet the needs of our community during this time that we have really been stretching our staff resources.  I am so grateful for your willingness to share – not just the content, but also the time it took just to reply (and so quickly!)!  Really, thanks!

Darren R.

Sharechurch is such a valuable resource to us all.  I find that I access it first on many topics just to begin my research, or to confirm if we are on the right track on a number of topics.  Thank you and COR for providing this to us all.
