Clergy are encouraged to identify and invite at least one layperson to attend the training alongside them.
The redesigned workshop for 2021 will now be an eLearning course with self-paced lessons, small group discussions, and scheduled ZOOM meetings. The entirety of the workshop will run 12 days, with 3 days of ZOOM sessions included. Below is the tentative schedule.
Day 1 Orientation Session via Zoom (evening)
Days 2-5 Four Self-Paced Lessons via eLearning Platform
Day 6 Two 3-hour Zoom Sessions (morning and afternoon)
Days 7-11 Two Self-Paced Lessons via eLearning Platform
Day 12 Two 3-hour Zoom Sessions (morning and afternoon)
There are 7 virtual trainings being offered this fall. Each session has a capacity of 55-60 people. Because they are online, they are no longer by district. Clergy may now choose the session they wish to attend.
