York River District Clergy Association (YRDCA)

  The Purpose of the YRDCA is to facilitate the connectional support and mutual care among the entire York River District Clergy Community.

  • Note the emphasis on facilitating instead of forcing.
  • Typically, this will be done by providing opportunities for worship, fellowship, prayer, through peer learning groups and large group gatherings.
  • The Clergy Community includes active, retired, and on-leave clergy residing in this district and to some degree their families as well.
