Consultation to Clergy logo

Resources and Services


Each team ministry is unique. Consultation to Clergy seeks to foster mutual growth, expand team member’s appreciation of differing styles and gifts, deepen relationships and promote a unified vision for ministry among its participants. To accomplish this, CTC has developed a three year consultation process that involves both half-day retreats and two-hour consultation sessions. This process is appropriate for newly formed teams as well as established teams.


The process includes an initial half-day retreat to determine the specific objectives for the year with two 2-hour follow up sessions at three to four month intervals.
