Fellowship of Associate Members & Local Pastors Retreat

 Sunday, August 18, 2019 - Wednesday, August 21  
Lakeside Chautauqua

There are several categories of clergy in The United Methodist Church. One is a licensed pastor.

A person called to ministry becomes a licensed local pastor by attending a five-year Course of Study School. The school is operated by the “national church ministry office” and generally taught on a United Methodist seminary campus.

Those who graduate are licensed local pastors. With additional coursework, some become associate members of an annual conference.

Like United Methodist Elders, these pastors, frequently bi-vocational, need time away to reflect and re-charge their spiritual batteries. Lakeside Chautauqua provides that experience by hosting a Fellowship of Associate Members & Local Pastors Retreat.

This year’s retreat will be held from Sunday, Aug. 18-Wednesday, Aug. 21. The theme is “Civil Dialogue in an Uncivil World.”

The seminars will be led by the Rev. Dr. Greg Linville, Director of Research Development for the Association of Church Sports and Recreation Ministries and Dean of the AGON Institute of Sports Ministry. He’s a Licensed Christian Pastor in the Evangelical Friends Church.

This week’s Faith for Living Hour will be led by the Rev. Ed Peterson, Canal District Superintendent of The United Methodist Church.
