What We Did in 2020
Synod Coaching – SOLT offered a years worth of coaching to over fifty ministers at no cost to the participants. This coaching helped participants claim a stronger sense of possibility in their present and future leadership and in remind them of who the Spirit is calling them to be.
Synod Gift – In Spring 2020, SOLT along with its commissioners, Executive Presbyters, and the Board of Directors distributed over $160,000 in SOLT funds to support 800 saints with ministries that stretched over Indiana & Illinois – via churches, hospitals, hospices, senior care facilities, universities, seminaries, prisons, camps, conference centers and other not-for-profits. The Synod wanted to encourage ministers to practice self- care while managing the changes in their ministries because of COV-19.
(Pre)Advent Offerings for Pastoral Leaders – During the month of November, SOLT offered three opportunities around the subject of Advent to pastors and other church leaders to refresh and nurture them as they prepared to lead their congregations during the Advent season.
Retirement Coaching – SOLT offered small group coaching to pastors who recently retired or are preparing to transition into retirement.
