2014 Pastoral Teaching Institute:
Having a Christian Way of Life
PTI teaching is especially important for community pastoral workers and Kairos staff to hear; it is also helpful and appropriate for any community member. Communities should make it a priority for senior leaders, pastoral workers, youth workers, and those who may serve in these capacities in the near future, to attend the PTI.
Price: $75 per person.
Registration Details: The PTI will begin Thursday, June 26, at 4:30pm and end Saturday, June 28, at 10:00pm. We are not offering a partial registration option as the PTI is a complete unit and we want those who attend to receive the whole PTI. People can attend less than the whole conference, but they have to pay the full registration fee.The NJ PTI will take place at Koinonia Academy. All teaching sessions will be on the school campus, as well as dinner on Thursday, lunch on Friday, and lunch and Lord’s Day dinner on Saturday. The cost of attendance covers all of those meals and teaching materials, as well as the costs of running the institute.
The registration deadline is Friday, June 6, 2014 — this is a firm deadline. We will not be able to place late registrants.
3 Important Steps
If you are planning on attending, there are three important things to do:
We are expecting a number of individuals and couples to attend this PTI from other communities. In the past guests have found lodging accommodations both at local hotels and with families in the community. We expect that some guests this year may wish to stay with a community family. If you would be willing to host one or two guests, please contact the community office. There is a $25 dollar stipend to go toward any costs of hosting guests for the three nights.
