Pastors Roundtable Groups

Our Pastors Roundtable Groups are once-a-month gatherings for pastors. These are great times for pastors to gather to interact, fellowship, share and grow together. We have a number of groups that meet monthly. A modest fee is requested for a few of the groups to help cover costs for snacks and lunches. All roundtable groups meet in the Ockenga Library located in the Academic Center. For more information about a specific group, please email us at ockenga@gcts.edu.

 

To register for a roundtable group or for more information, contact ockenga@gcts.edu or call 800-294-2774.
