College for Congregational Development (Summer 2022 Weeklong Intensive)

July 24, 2022July 29, 2022

College for Congregational Development (CCD) is for YOU

Are you a lay or clergy leader who is…

  • praying for guidance where God is leading your parish to grow and thrive?
  • working to build up a healthy, faithful, and sustainable congregation?
  • looking to develop new skills and strategies to respond to today’s challenges and opportunities?
  • seeking to live into our diocesan vision, mission, and rule of life?
  • yearning for a new vision and renewed energy for the work God has given us?

What is the College for Congregational Development?

We seek to develop healthy, faithful, sustainable congregations able to fulfill their calling to be the body of Christ in a particular place, time, and community. The College equips leaders to look at their current reality (Who are we? What are we? Where are we?), discern their future (What is God calling us to be at this time and in this place?), and work on strategies, goals, and actions to get to that future. The training includes exploring theory, engaging in applied exercises and experiential learning, and planning, doing and reflecting on projects in the parish.

Who should attend?

The College is focused on training congregational teams of clergy and lay leaders (although individuals are also most welcome). Many of the exercises of the College use your specific parish’s experience, and having a team present helps plumb that experience in a deeper way. Additionally, teams are more likely to be able to create positive change in the parish.
