Fellowship of Associate Members & Local Pastors Retreat

 Sunday, August 22, 2021 - Wednesday, August 25  
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 Aug. 22-25. Continuing education credit will be awarded at the conclusion of the event.
