At RELATE we love building relationships with pastors and their churches to help them discover and develop their potential. To aid us in connecting with pastors we offer two annual conferences located in Bradenton, FL and Conway, AR as well as several Huddles throughout the nation. Our goal is to share practical content and to create a community for coaching and pastoring pastors and their leadership. We never want to see a pastor do ministry and life alone.
