Called to Transformation: Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) Training
Sponsor: Episcopal Relief and Development
Registration Fee: $175
Called to Transformation, a partnership between The Episcopal Church and Episcopal Relief & Development (and developed with the assistance of the Beecken Center at the Sewanee), invites clergy and lay leaders from across The Episcopal Church to an Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) facilitator formation workshop. Over the course of a four day / three night conference, participants will learn about the theory and the practice of ABCD work, and then begin the process of creating a working plan to implement an ABCD project in their own ministry community. Those who complete the program also will be equipped to serve as facilitators for other communities that would benefit from this proven and theologically-based development methodology.
Registration for the following cities will be opening throughout the year:
Virginia Theological Seminary, Alexandria, VA - Monday, August 13th - August 16th
St. Columba Episcopal Conference Center, Memphis, TN - Monday, October 8th - Thursday, October 11th
