This VOCA Workshop is a 6-week course and confidential community that addresses the particular needs and challenges faced by Pastors and Missionaries. It is based on our LifeBridge curriculum, which has helped hundreds of professional ministers (from 2000 to present) to overcome burnout and refocus their ministerial calling. It incorporates interactive videos, worksheets, group coaching, and partnerships into the LifeBridge process.
VOCA provides a proven method for profoundly “hearing” God’s Voice. Participants hear this Sacred Voice in three distinct ways, allowing them to refocus their life and ministry around their unique Calling: Purpose (your vertical call), Mission (your horizontal call), and Vision (your practical call). They develop personalized statements for each aspect and draft a plan for activating their calling. They learn how to re-assess their LifeBridge Plan on a regular basis, and develop a plan for living a high quality of life while in ministry.
VOCA also helps participants confront prevailing struggles that hinder the full activation of their call, such as ministerial fatigue, boundary issues, conflicts, and fears.
