Peer Learning Groups


Peer Learning Groups (PLGs) provide an opportunity for ministers to form together, shaping one another through opportunities of worship, spiritual formation, discussion of ministry-related issues and fellowship. Currently, there are over 100 PLGs of 5-12 members. New groups are being formed and additional members are welcome.

Each group, facilitated by a convener, works collaboratively to determine the focus of their meetings and/or retreats. The Fellowship provides the groups with suggested resources related to promoting pastoral excellence and congregational health.

The networks are spread across four geographic regions. For information on each region click on your corresponding state:
