CBF of North Carolina (CBFNC) seeks a five-year grant for partial support for its Helping Pastors Thrive program, an effort that targets pastors of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship at different stages of their careers and helps them build relationships with peer colleagues for spiritual formation and ongoing professional development and support. The program will connect new and early career pastors with mentors and resource leaders through small groups and workshop retreats. Working together with partner colleges and theological schools, CBFNC also will create pastor-in-residence programs at these schools for mid- to late-career pastors who desire to seek time away from their congregation for personal reflection, learning and spiritual growth. To sustain this effort, CBFNC will raise funds from new donors and seek contributions from partner schools for the pastor-in-residence program.
