A Day Apart: Women Solo and Senior Pastors

Day Apart Upcoming Events 2014-2015 Day Apart 2008 Spring

The Resource Center for Pastoral Excellence offers a program uniquely designed for women who are senior or solo pastors.  Each year several "Days Apart" focus on fellowship with other women who share a similar journey, conversations with noted women authors, and personal spiritual formation.  If you are a senior or solo pastor, experience rest and renewal in the company of others whose journey is akin to yours.
