Forming Leaders for Mission

Event Details
This workshop is designed to give you the tools you need to be a Collaborative leader—no matter what role you are being called to serve in. During the workshop, you will learn about Disciples in Mission, explore the unique aspects of a Collaborative, and clarify your leadership role—both in the Collaborative and in Disciples in Mission. This dynamic workshop includes a mixture of group activities, individual reflection, prayer, and conversation.


  • In accordance with Disciples in Mission, any and all parish and collaborative staff (pastoral teams), parish councils, school boards, finance councils, collaborative councils, and plan-writing teams are strongly encouraged to attend this workshop.
  • Any and all volunteers or parishoners whom you believe would benefit from this training are also welcome to attend.
  • We encourage the councils, boards, writing teams, and pastoral teams to attend this workshop together as a group, where they can benefit from discussing the ideas and material presented together immediately. 
  • We understand the realities of those living busy lives as well, and know that it may not always be possible for a team or council to attend a particular date together.  

Core Leadership Topics
Forming Leaders for Mission will provide the opportunity to explore and discuss questions such as:

  • What is Disciples in Mission and how does it impact me, my parish, and my Collaborative?
  • What is a Collaborative?
  • What is my leadership role in the Collaborative?
  • What do the parishes in my Collaborative share in common? What are our differences?
  • What else do I need to know about being a Collaborative leader? Who do I turn to for answers?
