Spiritual Formation and Vitality Resources

Calling all active clergy!

As pastors we are sometimes so busy leading people in worship, we don’t get to experience worship. This Mini Lenten Pilgrimage is the perfect way to experience Holy Week before you have to lead it. 

Come and share worship and communion with Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson, experience fellowship and prayer with other clergy, and have some quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of life and ministry. Check out the schedule HERE.

Thursday, March 30 – Saturday, April 1
Register today:

Registration will be first come first serve. 

The Spiritual Formation Committee of the Board of Ordained Ministry coordinates the initiatives and support systems for clergy self-care and spiritual growth; including pilgrimages, Spiritual Direction, and Clergy Family Enrichment.
Funding may be available toward registration fees through the Clergy Development Program

Clergy Retreat Directory

The United Methodist Camp & Retreat Ministries (UMCRM) Association, made up of United Methodist camps and retreat centers across the country, continually strive to provide intentional, sacred spaces where the faithful can find rest and rejuvenation.

In response, they have come together to create the Clergy Retreat Directory, a list of UM sites across the connection that offer free or reduced cost retreat space for United Methodist clergy. As clergy navigate their ministry year, may they find comfort knowing that there are “sacred places apart” prepared for them in all U.S. jurisdictions. View directory…
