The trusty board of The Young Clergy Women Project has been busy this year coming up with new and exciting opportunities for us to be (and fund!) our community. Here are a few of the up and coming opportunities that you might want to be a part of:
- TYCWP’s 2010 Conference! Our conference will run from later afternoon/evening of June 27, 2010, through noon on June 30, 2010 at Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, Georgia.
Need a chance to learn and connect with young clergy women like yourself? Want the chance to re-examine, revitalize, and recharge with others who share your journey? Then THIS is your conference. We'll be blessed by the coaching of the Rev. Melissa Clodfelter and the Rev. Beth Kennett and the guidance of other colleagues as we consider what leadership looks like in 2010 and how we engage that leadership in powerful, balanced ways.
Our world and our church today sit squarely in need of a paradigm shift. Programs and quick fixes will not work in the places we serve. Snippets and sound bytes are not sufficient as we seek to engage our neighbors. We must move to our great core strength and prophetic voice. We must think about our own leadership style, what God might be calling us to do through that style, what does and doesn't work in our ministry settings, and how we can enhance what we're already doing to empower others as well as ourselves.
In the context of warm community, honest sharing, and probably some chocolate, this is what we'll begin to explore in our time together. You'll want to be here. Come join us.
