The Western North Carolina Conference Leadership Development Team offers workshops to increase the leadership capabilities of clergy and ministry professionals. Check out the current workshops available.


"Developing and Implementing an Outward Mindset" Workshop

Changing the culture in our communities where people shift from an “inward mindset” (self) to an “outward mindset” (others) and experience growth in relationships, collaboration, engagement, and accountability.

Workshops are being offered virtually and this fall will be held in person.

The DIOM team would love to do a training with your Sunday school class, leadership team, or staff.


The Ultimate ReLaunch Playbook Webinar Recording

This webinar is for leaders thinking about what it means to be the local church and how to show up differently in the community as both a faith community and as a disciple. It is for those who have already opened their doors and are thinking toward fall and for those who are still figuring it all out.


Launching a Non-Profit – Peer Learning Cohort

The group is being organized by Rev. Kris Mares and Rev. Alexis Coleman. This peer learning cohort is designed for clergy and/or laity who are working to develop a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The cohort will meet monthly for 90 minutes via Zoom and use Basecamp (an online collaboration system) for information sharing between meetings.


Post-Pandemic Game Changers Cohort

The pandemic created a crisis.  Crises can be an accelerator for change in your church.  This is a great opportunity to stop doing some things and consider what is needed now.  Join teams from other churches in WNC to have conversations about what your church’s post-pandemic ministry looks like.

Follow Jesus. Make Disciples. Transform the World.
