Peer Learning Sustains Clergy
Thriving in Ministry at VTS Peer Learning Communities provide participants with ways to deeply understand themselves and how others perceive them they learn, adapt, and change. Participants share experiences and wisdom, with trained Thriving mentors offering insights.
Through deliberate practice supported by their peer community and mentor relationships, Thriving in Ministry participants hone and expand their capacity as leaders after identifying the individual areas of growth they wish to address.
