Program Updates for the November Meeting

Your Leadership Team has been working hard to add programming to the Conference which will be of particular interest to ALLLM members and other practitioners of Continuing Education. We're not quite ready to announce all the plans yet, but here's a taste of what's in the works:
  • Three workshops focused specifically on ways to enhance continuing education programming for church leaders
  • a Thursday evening gathering featuring a well-known speaker who will help us reflect on the current state of the church, and the issues/concerns that leaders need to consider to respond to that.
  • networking with REA members during their "Lightening Round" session.
  • ALLLM Annual Meeting on Saturday afternoon November 3
  • Sunday morning gathering for continuing education leaders to reflect together on learnings from the conference and ways to take these home.


Wornom Innovation Grant

Are you dreaming about an innovative educational project that could use a financial boost?


The REA offers a  $3,000 award for innovative religious education projects and initiatives that further knowledge and deepen the practice of religious education, or that expand the field of religious education to a new area that is not traditionally associated with religious education. The annual application deadline is September 15.

The grant recipient(s) will be offered a breakout session or poster acceptance to present their work at the following year’s annual meeting of the REA.  The Harper-Wornom Committee will award $250 toward the travel expenses of the grant recipient(s).  If the recipient(s) is not able to be at the annual meeting, the allotted travel award will be used for technology arrangements for the recipient(s) to present via an online medium.
