Intense. Spiritually enriching. Faithfilled. Expanding. World-opening. Learning on Purpose: Changing Leadership for a Changing World is two weeks of focussed leadership training, in community, intended to help leaders to dig deep and expand outward.
The next Learning on Purpose will be offered June 11 – 23, 2018 in Victoria, B.C., at Christ Church Cathedral, a short walk from the Parliament region.
A diverse group attends Learning on Purpose. A required course for all United Church diaconal ministers, it is also an accepted component for Designated Lay Ministers, and increasingly popular continuing education option for ordained clergy and Anglican deacons. There are often students from the Sandy Saulteaux Spiritual Centre and other theological schools, various denominations and occasionally other countries and faith groups, making it a rich learning environment.
With an engaged, experiential learning environment that brings together observational, emotional, academic and outcome learning, Learning on Purpose embodies what it’s like to be ministers in a complex world.
