Pastors’ News

If you are a CBOQ Pastor, this is for you!

Below you will find links to recent issues of the CBOQ Pastors’ Update, news about where your fellow pastors are starting or finishing ministry and information about important upcoming events that are geared towards you and your ministry.

Now that you’ve been re-opened for at least a few weeks, how is it going? What has worked and what hasn’t? What have been the joys and challenges? What opportunities are before you? How are you?

On October 28 a group of pastors and leaders talked about these topics and others. Read the Summary.
