A Peer Group Study Program (PGSP) provides leadership consultation and resources for local congregations. This facilitated, year-long program is designed to build support networks for clergy as they deepen their knowledge of a self-selected study topic.
The range of topics selected for study, reflection and action may include areas such as faith and giving, congregational renewal, African-American and Hispanic relations, interfaith issues and relations, the public roles of congregations, and other such issues that reach into addressing perplexing problems and needs in Indiana congregations and communities.
The kinds of activities that the peer groups may engage in are workshops, reading and discussion sessions, preaching clinics, study/travel seminars, designing and carrying out projects with congregations, videotaping and critiquing preaching and teaching skills.
