Justice LED Facilitator Trainings

Facilitator trainings give people the opportunity to experience, as participants, some of the content and activities they will be facilitating in their own ministry settings.  It also allows them to see facilitators model the process of creating safe space, facilitating conversations that may encompass diverse perspectives and life experiences, and help the group maintain an atmosphere of mutual respect, dialogue and open-mindedness. Finally, the training allow facilitators to network with one another around their common work and hopes for the resource, and provides time and space for them to brainstorm, strategize and collaborate on how they plan to use Justice LED to inform and support their justice-related ministry efforts.

The Justice LED resource is provided to UCC churches and groups at no cost.  Registration fees are generally under $60 but vary;  they are calculated to cover the cost of meals and snacks, any building and A/V fees, and a small honorarium for trainers.
