In the Bishop's Cooperative Parish meetings and at some District gatherings across the Conference, clergy and church leaders have heard about resources to lead dialogues on difficult topics, particularly regarding questions of what the future will look like in our churches. To give clergy and church leaders a focused time to ask deeper questions so they will be better prepared to lead dialogues across difference, the Rev. Matt Curry (Director of Connectional Ministries) and Rev. Doris K. Dalton (Director of Leadership Development and Intercultural Competency) will offer another informational session via ZOOM video/audio conference call. 

Please note the change in date for this video/audio call. 
Due to scheduling conflicts on February 3, this training session is now set for January 15, from 12-1:30PM.
