Pastors need the endurance of an Ironman!

Completing an Ironman competition demands a level of endurance that doesn’t happen by accident. It requires unrelenting passion, focus and discipline—the same traits Christian leaders need for life-giving and sustainable ministry over the long haul. That is why the mission of the Transforming Center is to strengthen the souls of pastors and Christian leaders—so they can run the race of ministry well and finish their course strong.

The Transforming Center is reaching leaders in more ways than ever before:

  • In July we launched Transforming Community® #6 with over 70 participants, our largest yet!
  • The Transforming Center is going regional! We are now accepting applications for our first east coast (Baltimore area) Transforming Communitybeginning in spring 2012.
  • In June we began an academic partnership with Northern Seminary. Now those who complete the Transforming Community® can earn a Master’s Specialization in Spiritual Transformation or a Doctor of Ministry in Spiritual Transformation
  • We are launching new programs including Sacred Rhythms Train the Trainer event and Leading a Transforming Church™.
  • Almost 6,000 leaders visit our website each month since the new site launched in June (190% increase).
  • Subscriptions to eReflections are growing with 250% increase in senior pastors subscribing.

Celebrating 10 years of enduring ministry

The demand for our retreats, Transforming Communities® and spiritual direction services for leaders is growing along with requests to provide teaching and spiritual guidance in congregations, denominations, and ministry organizations. Our fees for programming and services only cover only half of our operational expenses. On August 28, 2011, Rev. Jonathan Taylor Haley (read his story) will compete in Ironman Louisville as a fundraiser for the Transforming Center.

Support us in our mission to strengthen the souls of pastors and Christian leaders.

Please prayerfully consider the amount you can give, and help us continue to respond to the spiritual needs of leaders while keeping our fees affordable. Any size gift will be a great encouragement. Your gift doubles when you give before August 28th. Thanks to some faithful endurance partners, for every $1 you give before August 28th the Transforming Center will receive $2 up to $10,000.
