The Connectors is a group that journeys over the course of 12 months to explore fresh approaches to flourishing ministry. It involves reflection, prayer, discussion, study, goal-setting, trying out missional initiatives, mutual peer support and more!

ü Do you sense that God is nudging you to try something new?

ü Do you wish to reach out to people who might never come to Sunday worship?

ü Do you desire to be the hands, feet and heart of Christ to your community?

ü Would you like to experience the joy and deep satisfaction that God can use you to make a difference?

This peer learning community begins in early 2023 for lay and clergy participants who want to explore discerning prayer, deep dive discussions, engaging readings, goal-setting, mutual support and encouragement.

Participants in this cohort are a gift and asset to a local parish and their community.

Facilitators are: Kim Lively, Parish of Oakfield & Fall River; Bishop Ron Cutler (retd);

Rev. Canon Lisa Vaughn, Parish Vitality Coordinator.
