College for Congregational Development

The College is a comprehensive training program that seeks to nurture and develop congregational development practitioners from within existing parish lay and clergy leadership. We will launch our bi-diocesan CCD in Summer 2023.

During his address to the 2022 Joint Diocesan Convention, Bishop Singh announced that the Dioceses of Eastern and Western Michigan would launch a College for Congregational Development (CCD) in Summer 2023.

Details are still being finalized — dates, location, and pricing for the week-long training will be released soon.

Congregations participate in CCD by bringing teams to the weeklong training. Teams should be 3-4 people with interest and capacity to learn, engage, and bring the content home to their congregation. Clergy staff should be part of their congregation’s team.

Teams are usually from a single congregation. We will also accept combined teams from congregations in collaboration with one another.

Details to come!

Members of the Eastern and Western Michigan scouting team for CCD engage in conversation during the week-long training.


Coming soon!
