The Pastoral Excellence Program

The purpose of the Pastoral Excellence Program is to develop, promote, and sustain excellent pastoral leadership for the churches in the Massachusetts Conference, United Church of Christ, and to create a model which can be used by other Conferences around the country.

Pastoral excellence is a way of life marked by character, competence and constancy and is practiced in community. To that end, we have created a vibrant conference-wide network of small groups and large learning events for clergy in every season and calling of ministry. Through offering opportunities for collegial support and ongoing development in the practices of pastoral ministry we strive in increase ministers' sense of job satisfaction while magnifying their success in their ministerial setting.

The Special Offering for this worthy cause will be taken up on Sunday, January 13th.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.
