Every Wednesday for four weeks from mid-July to mid-August around 60 OCO leaders attended OCO’s first Education Leadership Institute. The Institute was held to expand our leadership base connected to local schools and congregations while further equipping a powerful, diverse, multicultural group of leaders who will determine the future of our local and district wide work in the coming year.

Throughout all four sessions the participants were able to strengthen their relationships through 1-1s, develop their analysis, learn about power, and strategize as they intentionally worked together and built relationships across race, culture, language, age, gender, faith, etc.
