Prayers of the People

PrayThe health of a minister impacts the ministry of the church. Because research has shown that one key element of ministerial health is shared learning and support with peers, CBF offers Peer Learning Groups as a way to establish a small community of support. Ministers across the Fellowship gather regularly with their Peer Learning Group to worship, learn, share, grow and fellowship. Groups covenant together to protect this time in their calendars as they intentionally plan their gatherings to best address their needs. They meet over lunch, for a retreat or via technology. They read books, share stories, plan sermons and dialogue around difficult topics. These small groups join together with others doing the same type of ministry, experiencing the same life stage or because they live within driving distance of each other. Peer Learning Groups are life-giving to the minister, to their congregations and to their families.

Pray that Peer Learning Groups will continue to be a safe place where ministers can be vulnerable as well as find support and renewal during their times together. Pray for the congregations represented in these groups. Pray for wisdom as conveners lead the groups so that all can learn best practices for their ministries.
