Practical Shepherding Pastors’ Workshop

February 4 - February 5

Looking for practical help for the nuts and bolts of pastoral ministry? Are you nearing burnout, suffering from the effects of an extended pandemic and a divided nation? How’s your soul as a pastor? How’s your family?

Join us at Poquoson Baptist Church on February 4-5, 2022 for a Practical Shepherding Workshop led by Brian Croft. Brian is a proven ministry leader who has trained pastors all over the world to keep watch over themselves and their flocks (Acts 20:28).

This 2-day workshop will feature sessions on pastoral hostility, the pastor’s soul, the pastor’s ministry, and the pastor’s family. Senior pastors, lay elders, and men aspiring to pastoral ministry are encouraged to attend.
