Yesterday afternoon the halls of the Dumas Bay Conference center filled with the sound of future and current congregational developers, readying themselves for a week of learning, growing, and relationship building. Also present is the ubiquitous newsprint, markers, and the signature bi-polar weather of the Pacific Northwest.
This year’s group of participants is one of the most geographically diverse sets of folks the College has seen in a training yet. Learners from eight Dioceses, including the home Diocese of Olympia, are represented by participants and training staff.
Now that everyone has some group time and model discussion under their belts, the summer session is truly underway. Stay tuned for reflections from trainers and profiles of our participants as the week progresses!
