Chaplains are uniquely qualified to continue in retirement the healing ministry of Jesus. This interactive workshop will empower participants to imagine new and prophetic ways of being of service by claiming the gifts of retirement–such as time, freedom, restedness, and perspective–and by applying the Common and NACC-Specific Competencies. The workshop is geared to chaplains who are contemplating retirement, who are already retired and choose to remain board certified, and/or who wish to apply their skills as healers to non-ministry settings.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Refine their understanding of the gifts and challenges of retirement as they relate to volunteer work and spiritual growth.
- Learn specific applications of the competencies to nonprofit governance, including board development,
fundraising, and organizational leadership.
- resources and peer support for ongoing development of retirement-related competencies
