Clergy Colloquium


Ministry, Leadership, and Mission is gathering of clergy new to the Diocese of Tennessee, or who have moved to new to positions from elsewhere within the Diocese.

Over the course of several monthly meetings a cohort is formed where people can learn about the Diocese of Tennessee, share their experiences of ministry, their hopes for the future, and occasionally their frustrations in a confidential and supportive environment.

Learning together, sharing insights, and getting to know one another support the ministry of each priest and builds the collegiality among the clergy of the Diocese.
