Quakers often say that they did not abolish the priesthood, but the laity. Each of us is called to use our gifts to minister to one another in our meetings.

Some Friends may be hesitant to respond to a call to serve out of a sense that they need training in the skills related to the gifts they have to share.

This Institute presents an opportunity for Friends to enhance the skills they need to serve their meetings with joy and confidence.  We will focus on topics including but not limited to religious education, eldering, pastoral care, clerking, and recording.

We expect that each Friend will leave the weekend with new energy and enthusiasm for supporting the life of their meeting, feeling well grounded in the theoretical and practical aspects of their call to serve.
