The College seeks to equip people with knowledge and skills at three different levels: individual, team or group, and whole system. The program includes teaching of theory, engaging in application exercises and experiential learning segments, and planning, doing, and reflecting on back-home projects.
The program works toward the development of a learning community of lay and ordained leaders from congregations throughout the diocese, who share common experiences and skills and a common language for working together.
Facilitation skills are a particularly central practical element that we work on throughout the program. In terms of theory, we make extensive use of a set of core models oriented toward thinking about congregational systems; a variety of other models are introduced throughout the program as various topics are covered.
