Pastoral Leadership for Public Life
PLPL invited me to see a much larger picture of ministry action in the world. I have been encouraged to be more in my community and speak more for those without voice. This PLPL was a powerful point of ministry for me.
Pastoral Leadership for Public Life (PLPL) helps pastors stretch their vision, develop their capacity, and increase their confidence to lead at the intersection of the Good News and the Common Good. In 2021 we are launching with a focus on rural Texas. Many clergy in rural settings lack connection to supportive colleagues within their region and beyond. Woven throughout this cohort program are opportunities to deepen relationships with peers, engage in practical action, and reflect theologically.
PLPL Rural is a 12-month commitment to learning in a community of sixteen pastors with five to fifteen years in practice. This cohort will meet online and in-person.
