sophia 2-11 gong.jpgSophia Program: Ministering to Ministers

Next Sophia Circle forming February 25-27, 2018. Register by February 18.


Women bring unique and special  gifts to their churches and make significant contributions to ecclesial ministry.

The Sophia Program creates a life-giving network for women in church ministry. It is an opportunity to partner with women who serve in various church-related ministries, including pastoral care, administration, education, faith formation, chaplaincy or liturgy.

The Sophia Program provides ongoing spiritual formation and support by:

  • encouraging women to deepen their relationships with God, the persons whom they serve and with whom they collaborate in service,
  • creating a safe and supportive environment for women to experience spiritual companionship,
  • inviting women to reflect on the experience of ministry as it relates to their own spiritual growth, and
  • spiritually supporting women to explore how their spirituality shapes and influences their ministry.

New groups are continuing to form. Participants commit to meet three sessions a year for two years from Sunday evening to Tuesday evening. Cost per session is $150. Sponsorship assistance is available.
