“ … this is about the rest of your life in ministry. And the potential is that what you will learn, and what you will plan from this, will positively affect not only your ministry, but also your life, your family life, everything.”
— Reverend David Garnett
The Assistance Program sponsors Presbyterian CREDO conferences to help PC(USA) teaching elders cultivate their spiritual, vocational, health, and financial well-being, as well as their leadership potential.
An experienced faculty team guides participants in growing and changing in these key areas of their lives. Each conference becomes a true learning community, in which all participants share with one another their knowledge, experience, compassion, and care. In this way, CREDO helps participants to replenish their spirits and rediscover the passion that first animated their call to ministry.
- an intentional Christ-centered community;
- a work of the heart, mind, body and spirit;
- a living stream with a sustainable spirit;
- a four-step life cycle process of identity, discernment, practice, and transformation.
There are two types of conferences: one set for mid-career pastors serving congregations; another, for recently ordained pastors serving congregations.
