Beginning in the northeast United States, eleven:28 will provide a unique brand of soul care for vocational ministers working in contexts that are largely post-Christian. The soul care of these (often bi-vocational) ministers increases the amount of contact they have with other ministers, works cross-denominationally, and provides them with resources their church cannot often afford. Through a blend of in-person workshops, printed materials, spiritual formation, and online interaction, participants will build lasting friendships.
“Ministers” in these contexts may be a loose term. Many spiritual leaders in these areas are working outside of traditional churches. Anyone in remote areas where Christianity is a minority or is in drastic decline will benefit from the additional contact, spiritual renewal, and sacred space created in these groups.
