Sustaining the Ministry
Leadership Formation Partners knows the value of ongoing ministry formation — a leadership development process rooted in the Catholic tradition that engages our shared experience and grounds us in the mission and ministry of Jesus. Formation includes programming and resources that help associates deepen a sense of personal spirituality, as they gain an appreciation for the mission, values, charism and rich heritage of the organizations in which they serve.
“Effective and ongoing formation is a requirement to sustain Catholic health care as a ministry.”
Catholic Health Association USA, “Framework for Senior Leadership Formation” (2011)
Our award-winning programs offer expert-developed content in a flexible, cost-effective and scalable blended learning environment. By establishing individual and shared reflection as essential practices, they help to build community among cohorts of participants. And our ongoing evaluation, reporting and program consultation provide support for the organization and for local facilitators.
All this is supported through regular connection with a small cohort of professional colleagues around questions that matter:
- Where do I find meaning each day?
- What grounds this work?
- How did I make the mission manifest in my work today?
- To what am I called? To what are we called together?
- How must we respond?
Engaging Employees and Impacting Culture
By engaging in ministry formation leaders are more connected to the mission and values of the organization. This deeper connection supports their competency to articulate mission integration and lead the ministry of Catholic healthcare. Our patients and families, and all with whom we work will experience the healing ministry of Jesus.
