The 1.5 Day Training that kicked off teams’ LDI projects for 2014, “Introduction to the Practices of Leadership and Organizing”, was January 24 and 25 at Church of the Redeemer in Chestnut Hill.
100 people were in attendance from 15 different teams, including local DioMass teams and UCC teams (St Andrews Framingham, Church of Our Saviour Somerset, St Johns/St James Roxbury, Christ Church Cambridge, The Crossing, Old North, Life Together, B-PEACE Youth Jobs, Congregational Church of West Medford); as well as teams from Texas, Tennessee, and Maine.
The team of facilitators and presenters for the training included LDI staff and alumni, Life Together Second-Year Fellows (Emmaus Fellows), and local community organizers. More photos from the event are available on the LDI Facebook page. Following the training will be monthly coaching clinics – online and in Boston – where teams will gather for dinner, worship, further training, and coaching across teams.
