The Academy for Missional Formation has developed a new system to build diocesan convocation leadership groups. (which have replaced the model of “Thrive” days) are peer-based and centered on learners’ interests, enabling them to gather information, tools, and models that foster creativity and support growth of congregations and convocations.
Our goal is to encourage leaders as learners to experiment and create ways to serve God. All of our workshops are structured to the spiritual needs of the convocation and are based on the sources of transformation model of mission.

We encourage you to spread the good news throughout your congregations. We recommend inviting vestries, leaders, and learners. For questions, please contact, The Rev. Canon Dan Morrow, firstname.lastname@example.org and The Very Rev. Robyn Szoke-Coolidge, email@example.com.
Leadership Days are a collaborative effort between the Stevenson School for Ministry and the Office for Parish Life Mission.
