Young clergy are especially vulnerable in the first few years of their ministry to become discouraged and leave the pastorate for good.  The NTS CPL is deeply committed to offering mentoring opportunities for our young clergy through our Mentoring for Ministry initiative (Read more and get an application).  


The NTS CPL Mentoring for Ministry project seeks to create a more vital and healthy clergy in the Church of the Nazarene through a mentor-led, peer group program specifically targeted to address the challenges faced by new clergy. The pilot cohort will meet twice yearly on the NTS campus for a week long retreat session (5 days) that will include an educational component, spiritual formation, mentoring, fellowship and more beginning in the Fall of 2017 (October).  Applications are due by July 15.
