ReAlign: Program Information

Program Goals

Sustaining Pastors...

The reAlign Program seeks to:

  • Move pastors from a place of surviving in ministry to thriving in ministry
  • Increase the longevity of men and women in their pastoral call
  • Reduce the national dropout rate among pastors

for Authentic...

The reAlign Program positions pastors to be transformed into "Wounded Healers" who will:

  • Embrace a healthy level of vulnerability with their parishioners
  • Rediscover their core identity as a child of God secure in Jesus Christ
  • See their vocation as a way of life

and Effective Ministry

The reAlign Program seeks to increase the impact of Christ's church by equipping pastors who:

  • Minister out of an increased Kingdom theology
  • Are equipped to discern and align themselves with the movement of God in their respective ministry
  • Serve in and through the power of the Holy Spirit
  • Speak to the core needs in people's lives
  • Engage in strength-based ministry formed out of their anointing

Program Format

Each reAlign cohort is limited to 20-25 participants who will attend 4 Turning Point retreats. The retreats will include teachings, experientials, small groups, individual spiritual direction and formational prayer sessions, and quiet times of reflection. The retreats are based on the "5 A's" teachings developed by Dr. Terry Wardle, which are:

Awakening
To the love of the Father...to the fullness of all Christ has accomplished for us...to our true identity as a child of God...to a ministry rooted in our true self. Be awakened to greater depths of understanding of who God is, who we are, and the incredible love that remains the foundation of it all.

Abiding
Remove the obstacles to living a life of abiding in the loving and secure presence of God. Reconnect to the Source of Life...and remain! Experience growth, transformation, and the power of Christ.

Anointing
The Holy Spirit of God dwells within us! We are the people of the Presence - God's image-bearers to the world. Let us deepen our understanding of, reliance upon, and capacity to minister out of the anointing the Lord has placed on our lives.

Authority
We are seated with Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6)! It is in His strength, power and authority that we are called to serve. The Creator and Sustainer of the Universe stands behind us; Kingdom ministry stands before us. Serve boldly in the powerful name of Christ.

Action
As our true self is revealed, so is our true vocation. We wrap our will around the will of God; joining our work with God's work as co-laborers with the King. Our gifts, passion and purpose are reAligned with all God has created and called us to be. This is life, and life to the fullest.
