Strategic Ministry Initiatives
The diocese has launched several Strategic Ministry Initiatives focused on key areas of mission and ministry. Learn more about them and connect with their leaders here.
Anglican Studies Program
We are delighted to announce that our new Anglican Studies Certificate program begins this January! It consists of four classes, which can be completed in one year: Anglican History, Sacramental Theology, the Anglican Pastoral Tradition, and Anglican Theology and Ethics. Participants will take one course per quarter, and each course will consist of asynchronous online learning, bi-weekly live seminars over Zoom, and one 48-hour, in-person weekend residential including meals, worship, and conversation. It is a robust, relational, and cost-effective program for the formation of thoughtful Anglicans. It is required of all ordinands, and open to all DCH clergy, as well as lay leaders with a rector’s recommendation. Registration will be closing soon, so please apply below if you are interested! If you have any questions, please reach out to Rachael Green at .
