Peer Learning Groups

CBFNC partners with CBF Global to provide support for local ministers through Peer Learning Groups (PLG).  There are 15 PLG’s operating in North Carolina. This is an excellent way for ministers to learn from and connect with other ministers who share common ministry contexts (i.e., rural settings, multi-staff congregations, bi-professional ministers, etc.).  CBF Global offers financial support for PLGs.

For more information visit CBF’s website.

CBFNC offers matching funds for new and existing PLGs. For funding information for PLGs within CBFNC, please contact Mary Kaylor, associate coordinator, at


Christian Coaching is a toolkit and leadership style that nurtures collaboration, builds ownership and consensus of dreams and goals of individuals, teams, churches and community groups.  CBFNC provides support, training for coaches and coaching services for clergy and churches who are in the midst of transition.  Coaching is very useful :

•  when clergy are in their first couple of years in a new church;

•  when congregations are seeking stability, focus, fresh momentum and consensus; and

•  when staff or lay leadership teams are seeking to clarify goals and implement strategies to fulfill their goals.

Over the past eight years, CBFNC has trained over 40 Christian coaches and 10 congregational coaches to support ministries of our leaders and congregations. For information about finding a coach, engaging coaching services or to explore further the benefits of coaching, contact Eddie Hammett, CBFNC Church and Clergy Coach at
