LIT workshops at GA:

"Moving from Clergy-centric to Collaborative Ministry" with Rev. Erik Wikstrom and Leia Durland Jones

"Creating Leadership Opportunities for Growth in a Diverse World"
This workshop will present a model of leadership in our congregations that embraces the best of shared ministry along with setting up a system where people who are historically marginalized are given a voice. This will encourage a holistic and collaborative process for empowering congregations to become robust and progressive organizations.
