Pastors, are you feeling tired, lonely or disconnected?

If so, The Resilient Pastor Cohort might be for you.


Join Barna on this journey alongside our team of faculty and other pastors over six months as we explore a variety of ministry topics through group sessions, breakouts and an in-person retreat.

What’s Included in the Cohort?

  • Monthly Zoom meetings to hear from one of our faculty members about their experience with a particular challenge pastors are facing. These virtual gatherings will happen for the first five months.

  • Group discussions on pressing ministry topics facilitated by Glenn Packiam after each faculty’s presentation.

  • 75-minute breakout group calls later in the month to share what you are learning and how you are wrestling with specific challenges in your own context.

  • In-person retreat featuring sessions with each faculty member, time for rest and fellowship with the other pastors participating in the cohort. Meals will be included. All participants will be responsible for their own airfare and lodging.
