One of the most valuable things I do is meet monthly with a couple of other pastors from the area for breakfast. Our district superintendent got us up and running with this years ago. It has been a priority of his to get pastors "clustering" together and it's a great legacy of his ministry that so many are doing it all over the state. The other pastors are from  EFree churches. We encourage and coach each other, share resource ideas, commiserate, laugh together and so much more. I wonder how many other people (not just pastors) would benefit from this kind of relationship with people in their field of work?
