Go the Distance Cohort for the ECC

EQUIPPING LEADERS TO RUN THE RACE THAT GOD HAS FOR THEM

We believe that Christian leaders do their best work when guided by a theologically informed vision of the future. To that end, this cohort focuses on Christian hope and helping you run your race.

Over the course of six sessions, you will pay attention to how you SHOW UP to the race. You’ll VISUALIZE THE GOAL, WARM UP, CHECK THE TRAIL CONDITIONS, and MAKE A TRAINING PLAN. With the encouragement of your cohort members and guide, you’ll GET GOING on some action steps that will help you make progress toward a shalom-shaped future.

Cohort Pricing and Schedule

Thanks to a grant from the Lilly Foundation and in conjunction with the De Pree Center, the ECC is able to offer this $500 cohort experience for $50 to pastors and leaders within the ECC who maintain good ministerial standing. Their commitment to helping pastors thrive has made this resource possible for you.

What's in It For You?

Six Sessions of Reflection and Conversation

Once, every other week for six weeks, you’ll join your cohort for a two-hour session via Zoom.

Time and Space to Process

Each session provides time and space for you to process the homework from the week before. In the sessions, we focus on listening to God, listening to one another, and listening to ourselves.

Discernment Tools

Each session includes guided exercises, large group and small group discussion, individual reflection time, Scripture engagement, spiritual practices, and homework to facilitate the work you need to do in this cohort.

Fellow Travelers

Companions are crucial to any journey. Our Go the Distance groups are intentionally small (8 participants maximum).

Go the Distance Might Be Good If:

  • You’re feeling a bit weary.
  • You want to recover from burnout.
  • You’re craving renewal.
  • You want some strategies for doubling down in the work God has called you to do.
  • You want to live with more intentionality in your life, work, and leadership.
