CREDO I Eight-Day Conference
The CREDO I Eight-Day Conference is the foundational CREDO Conference that began in 1997 for Pension Plan participants and the model from which all CREDO Conferences have been designed. The eight-day conference begins on Monday afternoon, when you arrive at your conference center and embark on a journey that many participants have described as life-changing. The CREDO I Eight-Day Conference design and structure are the same for all age-specific groups. CREDO Conferences include a carefully crafted blend of learning opportunities and activities that support an experiential learning model and the holistic understanding of wellness that is the cornerstone of the CREDO process. The design seeks to honor each person and recognizes that participants have different needs and learning styles.
Throughout the week you will experience large group gatherings and the opportunity for more intimate discussions with a select small group. Participants learn through faculty-led workshops and plenaries, and many fully engage in one-on-one consultations with experienced faculty members. Interspersed with times of listening, questioning, and learning are quiet times for reflection, worship and contemplation. There is space for physical activity and relaxed socializing, and opportunities for fun, laughter, and joy.
The CREDO Conference objective is to provide tools and time to focus on one's spiritual, vocational, financial, physical, and emotional well-being. With the accompaniment of an experienced faculty team, the conference becomes a true learning community through which all the participants share their knowledge, experience, compassion, and care with one another. A CREDO Conference will help you replenish your spirit and rediscover the passion that first animated your call to ministry.
