Weekly Online Interactions

There will be a weekly discussion starter every Monday morning… you will have until that Friday to respond to the post, read and participate. This should take 5-15 minutes per week. These weekly online interactions will be happening three out of four weeks per month, and on that fourth week, instead of an online post, it will be a scheduled video chat.

Scheduled Video Chats

There will be 2 scheduled one-hour video chats. The focus of these times will differ with the goal of talking through challenges and developing our ministry lives.

Real Connections

Meaningful relationships will be created as groups go from virtual to "real life". You will be sharpened, challenged, and refreshed.

The History…


To tell you a bit more about what would be involved, allow me to first share a bit of how this idea came about. In 1727  Benjamin Franklin started a club for mutual improvement established in Philadelphia. Also known as the Leather Apron Club, its purpose was to debate questions of morals, politics, and natural philosophy, and to exchange knowledge of business affairs. Some things we will borrow from Ben and the Junto, but others will be very different.

What are people Saying?

Hearing others ideas and input helps to keep an open perspective.

I have really appreciated the friendships and the resources that this group has offered.

Those connections of people who care about me and who I care about – that’s important for me!

Emily Hill

I take something from each member that makes me better!

Gotta be honest, I connected with several people on a genuine level.

Learn and Grow From Peers

You have a lot to offer and people need to hear your ideas and learn from your mistakes.

Break Isolation

Sometimes ministry can be the loneliest place in the world, but God intended us to be in community.

“Pastors must find peer groups and seek mentor couples to monitor their marriages and family lives. Understanding the threat and taking preemptive action would do much to protect our pastors, their families, their churches, and the appeal of the gospel.”
