  • Knowing Yourself: Ministry from a place of self-awareness– This new training will premiere at Leadership Academy. It is designed to equip individuals to better see their differences and divergences as strengths to be utilized to live into their unique calling as a part of the Body of Christ. Attendees will better understand their blind spots and name presumptions that no longer serve while reclaiming aspects that are most authentic and beloved, and having an opportunity to expand the lens through which they see Christ in the world and each other.
  • Simple and Creative: Bible Studies that deepen discipleship – The study of Scripture enriches all aspects of the life of the church and the individual.
  • Listening for God’s Call: Ministry of All the Baptized – Ministers of the church are lay people, Bishops, Priests, and Deacons. This workshop explores the ministry of the Laity in a variety of contexts.


  • Digital Evangelism: How congregations share the Good News with the digital world – A panel of presenters discusses engagement through Social Media, websites, and storytelling.
  • Conversing Across Difference – Creating space for challenging community conversations and conflict resolution, panelists from various contexts offer concrete examples of successful practices in their communities.
  • From Committee to Ministry: Small groups in word and deed – How would the work of the committees in your congregation be changed by fully embracing their role as ministry? How does prayer and practice support each member in their role? How would engagement change if current members and new people felt the support of a faithful small group dynamic? Explore how this has worked in three congregations and consider the implications for your own.


  • Ministry with Seniors – Enriching the faith lives of the people already in your pews.
  • Emerging Communities – Hear stories from three EDSD emerging communities and work in small groups to explore God’s Call in your context.
  • Engaging Young Adults Beyond Campus Ministry – Explore how you create space for deep connection and mutual respect in your congregation.
