REVgroups for Clergy

Reviving and Equipping for Vitality


The Center for Vitality seeks to provide resources for pastors, laity, and congregations to experience spiritual revival and become vital congregations that make disciples of Jesus Christ, who make disciples to transform lives, communities, and the world.

As part of our resourcing and equipping mission as a Center, and in process towards of Bishop’s Mission Plan Next Step #8 (Growing Excellent and Passionate Clergy), the Center for Vitality seeks to create Clergy Communities of Practice.



The heart of the REVgroup gatherings will be the utilization of group coaching and peer-based communities of practice. These groups will process opportunities and challenges within a sacred, reflective space to support the bold, adaptive leadership of pastors. Didactic “keynote” elements will involve a combination of outside experts, in-group participants, and Arkansas Conference practitioners. Topics for the didactic element will include matters such as: intentional discipleship systems, evangelism, mission-field engagement, stewardship, systems-based leadership, and unleashing laity for ministry. These subjects also provide a language and “balcony” viewpoint to better address the opportunities and challenges each participant faces in ministry.
