NEW PASTORS’ ORIENTATION
April 22-25, 2013 Fairhavens Retreat Centre
New Pastors’ Orientation (NPO) has been described as the most meaningful event CBOQ holds during the year. The retreat takes place over four days, offering an overnight experience, guest speakers, worship, and information sessions. Spouses are welcome to attend.
The ultimate goal is that new ministry leaders and their spouses will have ample opportunity to learn about the opportunities and services offered by the CBOQ and our partners, will meet CBOQ and partner staff, interact with one another over a longer period of time and be encouraged and informed to increase effectiveness in their ministries.
This retreat is a mandatory part of our CBOQ pastors’ accreditation process. As such, it is a required step toward ordination through a CBOQ congregation. More importantly, it is a great opportunity to build lasting relationships with colleagues in our family of churches.
