welcome to the anchorage
URBAN TRAINING COLLABORATIVE
We are investing in Anchorage leaders
who are working in social services and in churches.
We are developing stronger collaborative relationships
between these leaders and their organizations.
We are supporting our city's collective work
to make things right for all people in Anchorage,
especially the most vulnerable.
We desire to create spaces for leaders to reflect on and discern life-giving principles for life and work.
We desire to create spaces for leaders to anchor themselves in spiritually formative practices within a spiritually supportive community.
We desire to strengthen and support leaders who are creating transformative spaces throughout our city.
We desire for Anchorage to experience Shalom --
"everything the way its
supposed to be" for all people.
Burnout is an occupational phenomenon,
and social work and ministry leader occupations are particularly vulnerable.
Leaders can cultivate work and life sustainability through being
Anchored by a philosophy or a theology
Centered within one's spirituality
Holistically embraced inside a community
We are inclusive.
While our journeys have been primarily in the Christian tradition, the AUTC nurtures an environment where all traditions and journeys are welcomed.
We are training the heads, hearts, and hands of Anchorage leaders to love their city and seek its peace.
