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 focus their entire life and ministry around their unique calling. It incorporates interactive videos, worksheets, group coaching, and partnerships into the LifeBridge process.

VOCA provides a proven method for profoundly hearing God’s “Sacred Voice.” Following the pattern of Moses, participants walk through a process of discerning their vertical calling (Purpose), their horizontal call (Mission), and practical call (Vision). They develop a plan for activating their calling. They learn how to re-assess their LifeBridge Plan on a regular basis, to live 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.
