Crucible Class 6 Event 1: Personal Development
Tuesday, September 22, 2015 - 3:30pm to Friday, September 25, 2015 - 10:00am
Sponsored by the East Ohio and West Ohio Conferences
Crucible is a two-year transformational leadership academy designed to facilitate holistic clergy development. Through times of large group learning (retreats and one-day), monthly cohort meetings, and partnering with laity in their ministry settings, Crucible participants have the opportunity to deepen professional competencies, as well as, nurture their own personal wellness. 

The Personal Development Retreat, the first Crucible gathering, sets the tone for the entire journey. This will be a time of worship, learning, building relationships with a cohort group, and setting personal goals for both life and ministry.
