Cultivating Wholeness

An examination of healthy living for the church and pastoral leaders.

This course is a study of Christian formation that includes personal and congregational practices that contribute to mature faith formation and ministry. Some key questions to be explored are:

  • What is Christian maturity?
  • How does one cultivate a holy life personally and in community?
  • What does my calling mean for my relationship to the church?
  • What keeps a leader healthy in a lifetime of ministry?

Join us as we learn how to cultivate wholeness in pastoral service!


  • Rebecca Laird, D.Min., Associate Professor, School of Theology and Christian Ministry, Point Loma Nazarene University
  • Chris Adams, Ph.D., Associate Campus Pastor for Community Care, Azusa Pacific University

Seminar Registration:

  • Early Bird Registration (On or Before May 14th) - $79
  • General Registration (After May 14th) - $99


Seminars by the Sea are continuing education opportunities for pastors and church leaders to escape for several days of knowledge and skill development. Questions about this event? Contact Nikki Botts at 619-849-2410 or
