As part of EHF’s continuing effort to support congregations interested in strengthening their impact in the community, EHF is encouraging congregational leaders to attend trainings, conferences or other events where they may gain insight or skills that would benefit the outreach work they are doing. These events are also opportunities for leaders to network with others doing similar or complementary work. EHF has identified a number of events, listed below, that will provide Episcopal Church leaders with new skills or resources to improve their congregation’s service ministry. All of these events are aligned with EHF’s mission to transform community health for all. Events are listed on EHF’s new Learning Opportunities webpage and they are continuously being added and updated every month.
So that leaders of congregations, and in some cases their community partners, can attend these events, EHF is offering financial support for those who could not otherwise afford to attend. Click on the conferences below or go here to apply for financial assistance to cover the registration costs to attend these events. If you plan to attend but don’t need financial support, please let us know you will be attending so we can connect you with others from Episcopal congregations who will be at the event.
