Companions in Ministry (CiM) is an ecumenical support program that brings together Christian pastors and ordained deacons from diverse denominations, ethnicities, cultures, ages, and socio-economic backgrounds. The program provides opportunities for pastors to build peer relationships and accompany one another in their ministries, both online and in person. CiM aims to improve their sense of well-being spiritually and professionally, and to foster a supportive, ecumenical ministry network in southeast Wisconsin. In light of COVID-19, some of our present and future programming will take place online.

"It's an amazing gift to have this program bring together a diverse group of pastors that would not have easily found themselves together. We learn so much from the power of sharing our stories. This safe space is extremely important and rare for clergy. Just being able to share openly with one another is healing." (Cohort Two participant)
