Rev. Marshall Johnson, led an engaging and humorous training session on Monday, July 14th about how and why OTOC seeks to build a broad based of member organizations that have power to act together on issues of common concern. Nearly forty people from congregations, refugee groups, environmental coalitions attended the lively meeting.
This was the first of three training sessions for all those interested in learning how congregations and community leaders can develop relationships that have the power to create change. Leadership development and organizing skills promote creative problem solving and collaboration – skills useful in the workplace and in congregational committees as well as any type of organizing.
You are invited to attend the upcoming sessions! The following link contains a downloadable flyer with the details of each session, locations and times which you can copy and distribute to those who might be interested.
