Resource Center for Pastoral Excellence

The challenges and demands of pastoral work are constant and constantly changing.  Even good ministers are stretched and stressed in this context.  Focus becomes blurred.  Energy wanes.  Creativity ceases.  Rather than ministry from an overflow, a deep longing for a renewing is realized – a longing for the Source that gives meaning, hope and purpose to life and ministry. 

The mission of the RCPE is to create opportunities for pastoral enrichment that re-Source ministers, helping them maintain their effectiveness.  The center serves clergy of any denomination, both men and women, regardless of race or age.
