Wave 1 Mission Direct and Mission Support Directors were encouraged to attend a day of training and formation to explore the new Families of Parishes staffing structures, discover how we can Unleash the Gospel in new and exciting ways, and learn about the next steps in launching Wave 1 Families of Parishes.

The goal of the day was to provide clarity about the roles and responsibilities of the Directors and cast a vision for how the ministries within Mission Direct collaborate to help move individuals along the path of discipleship.

As a reminder, all Mission Direct and Mission Support Directors should complete the Introduction to Families of Parishes online course available on the learn.egwdetroit.org platform. After completing the Introduction to Families of Parishes course, Mission Direct Directors are invited to take the specific course related to their Mission Direct area.
