Healthy churches begin with healthy leaders.  TCBF encourages clergy participation in a local peer learning group, a regular gathering of ministers for support, encouragement, and learning. Peer learning groups meet monthly to provide opportunities for worship, spiritual growth, study, discussion of ministry-related issues and fellowship among ministers.  In Tennessee, peer-learning groups exist for pastors and associate pastors.  Plans are underway to launch new groups and we are always open to new conversations.  Contact Field Coordinator Rick Bennett at for more information about existing groups or any interest in starting a group in your area.  Funds are currently available to assist with the formation of groups.
