The Institute of Congregational Development is a comprehensive, year-long leadership development opportunity for those leaders ready to take their ministry to the next level.
Over the course of the last three years, participants have learned from prominent pastors, authors, coaches, and consultants from across the nation. ICD participants are contextualizing what they have learned and applying the information to their own unique settings.
This year, the New Ministries Strategy Board and the office of Congregational Development will be offering four follow-up events to graduates of ICD. These training events are also open to other clergy and laity with the passion for starting new ministries. The trainers will be provided by Discipleship Ministries and Path 1.
This first session is intended to include all graduates from the ICD program. Regardless of your current ministry situation, your participation would be highly valued. We will take time to get reacquainted and seek your valuable input on the strengths and weaknesses of the ICD program. Knowing how this program did or didn’t impact your ministry is vital to helping us improve the effectiveness of this program.
Participants will be introduced to the Change Your Ministry Pastoral Assessment which looks at keys areas of ministry grouped around Church, Culture, and Change. They will discover their preferred role for innovation, learn about creating a healthy leadership team, and focus on the skills and leadership styles best suited for creating new faith communities 
Registration: $30.00  Registration Deadline: April 26, 2019 which includes the Change Your Ministry Pastoral Assessment Workbook created by Craig Kennet Miller.

If you are a graduate from ICD, you are encouraged to participate.
