Arlington District Summer Cluster Meetings

Strengthfinder 2.0 BookThe tradition will continue! Arlington District Churches will meet together in clusters this summer. Summer Cluster meetings are a way to touch base with other Arlington Clergy, receive information about and begin to prepare for charge conferences, and an opportunity to read and study together as we prepare for another year in ministry.

This summer we are reading one (or all!) of three books on Strengthfinders:

  • Strengthfinder 2.0
  • Living your Strengths
  • Strengths Based Leadership

Read one or more of these, take the test if you haven’t already, and come to the summer cluster meetings prepared to talk about your strengths.

Please come having already taken the tests!
We will have short new DS ‘onboarding’ Q&A at each meeting, so if you have advice, questions or suggestions – that would be a good place to bring them!
