North Georgia Fellowship of Local Pastors and Associate Members

Purpose Statement

The purpose of the Fellowship of Local Pastor and Associate Members is to provide support, love, and encouragement to each other through the promotion of self-care and spiritual growth, and to create a sense of unity and fellowship. The fellowship will serve all local pastors and the Board of Ordained Ministry as an advisory resource group on needs and issues of Local Pastors and Associate Members. It will serve as a voice for Local Pastors and Associate Members in the North Georgia Annual Conference, will sponsor retreat time, and will encourage small group participation with all clergy on the district level
