S3: A Program for Sustaining Excellence in Ministry

Sponsored by the South Georgia Order of Elders and the Board of Ordained Ministry

S3 is a program for sustaining excellence in ministry sponsored by the South Georgia Order of Elders and the Board of Ordained Ministry.  S3 is a collaborative, small group, action learning experience that will help sustain/promote excellence in ordained ministry.  You and your peer group develop and implement a two-year long small group learning experience focused on three areas: Sabbath, Study, and Service.  S3 groups are self-selected and self-directed: you choose the members of your group and you develop the S3 learning project for your group (with direction from the S3 project committee).

“The purpose of an S3 group is to create a sanctuary in time providing a Sabbath environment for six to eight self-chosen participants who desire to spend a significant amount of time together over the next 2 years. Through Sabbath, study, and service the groups create deep, sustaining, enriching relationships with God and one another that sustain/enhance pastoral excellence through life giving settings of their choosing and creating.”
