The College for Congregational Development is...

- a program that builds skills and increases capacity for participants to develop congregations of all sizes, locations and conditions in to more faithful, healthy and effective communities of faith.
 - a training program designed to increase leadership capacity and refine facilitation skills necessary to lead meetings, small groups and teaching sessions.
 - an opportunity to equip participants with tools to assess the needs of their congregation, to develop strategies for its growth and vitality, and focus energy on its priorities.
 - a curriculum that teaches participants the skills to lead change processes, manage conflict and articulate the identity and purpose of their congregation.
 - a two-year, comprehensive training program for laity and clergy.
 - a learning opportunity grounded in both organizational development theory and practice; in congregational development theory and practice; and in the unique ecclesial tradition, beliefs and character of The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church.
