As clergy serving in three distinct small city/county seat parishes in “flyover land” between Cleveland and Toledo, three of us began to imagine what it might look like to function in ways parallel to the clergy staff of a large parish. Over the past four years, we’ve taken on several projects, defined what we can and cannot do together, and most of all, served as accountability and support for one another. In this workshop, we’ll recount the ways we have worked together, our successes and failures, and invite you to consider new models of clergy collegiality. Come talk with us about how to build connections and networks because it’s so easy to become isolated.
