5 Day Training on Organizing & Congregational Leadership
October 22 @ 8:00 am - October 26 @ 5:00 pm
Date: October 22-26, 2018
Hosted in partnership with NextChurch, this training will be an introduction to the universals of community organizing including examples of their implementation community and internal ministry contexts. Geared at clergy and lay leaders, the training will articulate a theological vision of ministry that emphasizes leadership development and the role of the church in the current political and cultural moment to help pastors and church leaders navigate the significant cultural changes we confront in the 21st century. In addition to the 5-Day training, attendees can choose to participate in a certificate program that consists of the one-week intensive in-person training followed by a 6-month distance learning cohort to integrate the training into their congregational work. Continued learning credits may be available for this.
