1st College for Congregational Development in Diocese of Maryland concludes
Lay and ordained leaders from 14 congregations and 5 dioceses came together June 6-11 at the College for Congregational Development in the Diocese of Maryland. The college is a comprehensive training program that seeks to equip lay leaders and clergy in congregational and organization development to more effectively lead their communities.
The goals of the College are:
Healthy, faithful, sustainable churches living into their calling to be the Body of Christ in their own place and time and people.
Congregations that are deeply grounded in their own Episcopal identity, in a way that fits with their context.
Leaders who know the challenges and opportunities they face and are equipped to respond, both individually and together with their faith communities.
A common language and culture of practice of congregational development throughout the Diocese, recognizing that this is possible for churches of all sizes, locations, and conditions.
Connections among leaders within and between congregations that strengthen shared learning, encouragement, community, and inspiration.
The College will be offered as an intensive summer week-long program at The Claggett Center each summer in Adamstown, MD in early June. The next College will take place in June 2022.
