Leadership matters. No congregation prospers without faithful, effective leaders – both lay and clergy. The Iowa Conference is committed to providing resources for the development and growth of leadership competency throughout our system. We invite clergy to gather with colleagues in “Covenant Communities for Pastoral Excellence” (CCPE) for group learning and mutual accountability. We provide a variety of support structures and growth opportunities for first call clergy – particularly those who are young. These and other leadership development resources are described in the links to the left. Check them out.
