What does CCCNZ PastorLINK do?

PastorLINK seeks to support every pastor, their spouses, and their families in sustaining ministry through a network of ‘pastors supporting pastors’ that values unity, encouragement and growth across the wider Open Brethren and CCCNZ movement of churches.

For 21 years, PastorLINK has served pastors from churches with an Open Brethren Heritage. Now, as CCCNZ PastorlINK, we have a heart to grow:

  • A relational network of pastors meeting across the country locally, regionally and nationally.
  • Mentoring and coaching of pastors.
  • A National Leadership Team of pastors.
  • Systems and supports to see the raising up of new pastors.
  • A network of recognised local support for pastors in need.
  • The dynamic sharing of resources and across the CCCNZ movement as others learn and grow.
  • An Annual Northern and Southern Pastors’ Retreat for pastors and their spouses, along with a suite of other events and activities especially for pastors.

Join us at a CCCNZ PastorLINK retreat

Unwind. Connect. Be fed. 

CCCNZ PastorLINK Retreats are designed for pastors and their spouses to unwind from the stress of ministry. There's lots of time and space to relax. Connect with others who know the ups and downs of pastoral ministry. Be fed from God's Word together, with time sitting under great Bible teaching. In 2021 we'll be holding retreats in Taupō and Nelson.

CCCNZ PastorLINK Retreats
3 - 6 August | Taupō
18 - 20 August | Nelson

Equipping for elders and potential elders

Come and join elders both current and future from our movement as they exploring and discussing issues that confront elderships. Together, by seeing in Scripture how Jesus led, be part of reviving the hearts of our movement’s elderships. We will do this by engaging each other in courageous conversations, exploring practical solutions, building relationships, and strengthening cross church collaboration so that together we can see the gospel flourish together in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
