Be A Joy-Starter.
Create the transformation zone.

Our New Year resolution is to reach 1000 churches with our joy starting program. The Round Table brings together those who have successfully introduced Joy Starts Here, Connexus and Thrive Training into their churches and communities along with those who are just learning about Life Model Works.

Here is your chance to share what works for you and discover what works for others. 

Learn to introduce joy and the nineteen gentle protector skills into your church.

The Pastor's Weekly, a roundtable gathering, offers online JOYStreams™ to bring pastors, leaders and joy instigators together in an interactive forum for fellowship, encouragement and solution-sharing opportunities.

This online event is free.
Simply, register for an East or West Coast Roundtable.

The Pastor's Weekly started as a result of the "Pastor Brown Bag Lunches" Shepherd's House started in the 1970's in southern California to meet the growing need for pastors and leaders to interact and learn joy-based solutions to ministry pain and problems. Pastors met over lunch with Shepherd's House staff members to find fellowship and hear relational, Life Model solutions to leadership and personal challenges.

The Pastor's Weekly combines encouragement with joyful relationships for Jesus-like joy and peace. We will soon offer interactive Round Table opportunities regionally.

Each Roundtable is free, simply reserve your virtual seat!
