Regional Pastors

Mentoring for New Pastors

About: The CRC has a mentoring program in place for newly ordained pastors. The mentoring is designed to happen over a 5 year period (but certainly doesn’t have to end after that!). The Regional Pastor facilitates making sure that this mentoring relationship is established.

Contact: Your Regional Pastor (see above).
