Are you yearning for a community where you can be seen and known? Where you can have the freedom to dream new dreams? Where you will be encouraged, inspired, and given space, time, and resources to grow as a leader and a person? If so, Soul Leaders is for you!

Soul Leaders consists of a five-retreat series that offers active clergy an opportunity to reconnect with their passion and purpose; explore issues related to heart, courage, and call; and help their congregations embrace God-sized dreams. Participants are part of a cohort of 12 to 15 colleagues and are gently, yet thoughtfully, led by two excellent facilitators who have been trained by the Center for Courage and Renewal. The retreats use a “circle of trust” approach developed by author and educator Parker Palmer. Using poetry, readings, and other content introduced by the facilitators, participants lean in to listening to their own voice and discerning the movement of the Spirit to gain clarity about how and where God is calling them to lead and which God-sized dream they are being called to pursue in their ministry setting. All retreats include time for journaling, listening to one another, building community, and silence—and each retreat builds on the previous one. The retreats begin with dinner on Monday evening and conclude with lunch on Wednesday. In addition to retreats, there are four opportunities to have individualized coaching sessions throughout the year to have focused training with the facilitators.
