Welcome to The Damascus Project!
We are a collaborative leadership development effort of the Minnesota and Wisconsin Conferences. Our mission is to develop an outcome based, integrative, holistic approach to leadership development. This approach is grounded in our rich Christian tradition as it engages in vital conversation with the blessings, joys and sorrows of today’s church and the world.
We have developed an innovative approach to teaching and learning that is outcome based and grounded in the Marks for Faithful and Effective Authorized Ministers. We are convinced that these Marks are foundational for all people of faith regardless of their sense of call. We are in the process of implementing and assessing our approach and are inviting people of faith in both Minnesota and Wisconsin to join us on this exciting journey.
