Are you weary in (not of) ministry? Have you been wounded by “friendly fire?” Are you in a transition in ministry and/or life? Do you want clarity on your particular strength and voice in ministry? Would you like someone to cheer you on just as you cheer others on?
In September, Pastor Jason Dorsey and Jenny Dorsey are launching an Identity Mapping cohort for pastors & spouses and couples in ministry. Jason and Jenny have thirty-three years of partnership in ministry. Twenty-two of those years has been spent in ordained ministry. They have experienced the highs and lows, the wonders and wounds, and the surprises and sadness of couples partnering in ministry. Jason is currently pastor at Redeemer Redmond in Redmond, WA. Besides being a mom and first lady of the church, Jenny is a professional coach. She coaches women professionally and pastor’s and church planter’s wives through Parakaleo.
We have space for up to twelve individuals/couples to join this cohort. We will meet via ZOOM, 2X a month on Tuesday evenings. The first meeting on Tuesday, September 22, 4:00-5:30pm Pacific Standard Time, will be an orientation to the curriculum and a chance to get to know members of the cohort. Besides this first meeting, we will meet sixteen times on Tuesday evenings over the course of nine months:
- October 6 & 20
- November 3 & 17
- December 1 & 15
- January 5 & 19
- February 2 & 16
- March 2 & 16
- April 6 & 20
- May 4 & 18
The session’s will last for 1.5 hours, 4:00-5:30pm. During each session we will discuss one chapter from The Name and the Tool that goes with that chapter.
The cost is $100 per person which covers the cost of the curriculum. The basic discipleship curriculum of Identity Mapping, The Name, has 14 chapters plus a prelude and postlude. Each chapter is followed by a tool to help you apply its teaching to your life. There are over fifty illustrations. We encourage you to color these “theological illustrations” to help you process the content of each chapter. There is room on each page to take notes, and places throughout the handbook to make journal entries.
Identity Mapping is a big commitment. Don’t join us in the journey if you can’t make a commitment to it. We’d love to talk more and help you discern if it is a good fit. Reach out to Jenny or myself to let us know if you are interested. Contact Jason at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
