Event Details
Join with a group of Episcopalians from across the United States as we wrestle with the complexity and potential of preparing people for ministry in the 21st century. As more and more Episcopal dioceses build local formation programs to serve the leadership needs of their faith communities, we’re all making a way out of no way — innovating, exploring, and meeting the pitfalls and exhilaration of charting unknown pathways. We invite you to join this community of practice, to share your wisdom and experience, and to learn from the experience and wisdom of others.

Who is invited?
Anyone involved in the creation or leadership of a local formation program for lay, diaconal, or priestly leadership in the Episcopal Church, especially:
Instructors in local formation programs;
Diocesan leaders, especially bishops and Commission on Ministry members;
Representatives of seminaries engaged in this work and in the questions above;
Affiliate practitioners and leaders from related programs working on the questions above

Participants will prepare for our time together by sharing some of their opportunities and challenges beforehand. We’ll also offer an advance platform for participants to work together on travel, ridesharing, and more.
