2020 Institute of Congregational Development

Participant Expectations

The Institute of Congregational Development is not meant to be an easy process; in fact, this opportunity was created to challenge Conference leaders to step outside their comfort zones, and take their ministry to the next level. Most ICD graduates would agree that, although challenging, the outcomes are well worth the investment of time, energy, and resources. Participants are expected to fully engage in the process intellectually, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. Specifically, in order to graduate and receive a certificate of completion, participants will be expected to:

  • Attend all of the on-site sessions (including field trips).

  •  Complete all required reading assignments.

  • Actively participate in all L3 Incubator group meetings.
