Plans for School of Congregational Development 2019 and 2020

After thoughtfully considering and reviewing many factors, we have decided to cancel the 2019 School of Congregational Development. This decision was made for several reasons. First, I believe the financial and political uncertainty we will face as a denomination post the Special Called General Conference impacts this event and its mission. Second, as we move into the future, we see this as an opportunity to build on the success of previous schools to create an excellent cutting-edge training event for church leaders across our connection. Given the current anxiety in our church, this will give us a time to rethink the scope of the event, regroup and work on a new concept for a great re-launch in 2020. Thank you to all who work on this event. I look forward to 2020!

Grace and peace,

Rev. Junius B. Dotson
