DCDI is a leadership training program focused on the ministry of developing the spiritual, community and organizational life of a congregation through a hands on approach to learning. Its goal is to equip parish teams to lead congregations into the future through:
- Renewing the baptismal identity and the apostolic ministry of parishioners
- Providing tools and strategies for growth and openness for transformation
- Empowering congregational teams to not only work effectively towards a common goal, but to know its identity – its calling
- And to begin looking at how to embody this Godly call into mission
Each participating congregation sends a team of 3-4 people, including the Rector or Priest-in-Charge. Smaller teams are welcome also.
The cost to attend has been subsidized to $50 per person for the two-year program. Financial assistance and childcare are available.
