Samaritan Counseling Center regularly presents seminars and workshops for clergy to address pressing issues within their communities. We fill an existing void for clergy seeking additional education, and are the only organization of its kind in this region. Our services help clergy members and their congregations as well.
We offer the First Tuesday educational series on an ongoing basis. Topics are selected based on input we receive from clergy members.
Each year, we hold the Growth In Ministry Conference at the beautiful Christ the King Seminary in East Aurora, New York. This is a daylong retreat focused on a specific, faith based topic. Hundreds of clergy members and lay people from all over New York participate in the session.
Attendees often leave the day stating that they felt renewed—that their batteries had been “recharged” so to speak. It is because of this that we intend to continue holding the Growth In Ministry Conference, and plan to create other opportunities for the faith community to find spiritual renewal.
