Ministry Renewal Retreat Facilitators Training Victoria

Merran and I enjoyed three days with the Renewal Retreat Faciitators for Victoria this week at Point Lonsdale.  Graeme Cann led several sessions on Reflection and Life Timelines.  I looked at Creating a Context for Renewal, Basic Retreat Facilitation skills including Accountabilities, Covenant Formation, Affirmations and Group Formation.  We explored some recent research on Burnout in Ministry and looked at Phases and Stages of Ministry. 

Notes have been added to our dropbox.

Ridley College MA Gold – the Minister’s Personal Growth and Development

In spite of a rather cold week, 14 Ridley MA students worked through 16 lectures and workshops on the Ministers Personal Growth and Development from Tuesday 12 to Friday 15 June.  The Yarra Valley Conference Centre provided an excellent learning environment with great facilities and excellent food.  Highly recommended! 

All the notes and presentations for the training course are now in our group Dropbox.  Additional resources for assignments will be added over the next few weeks.
