If you are a MFN participant who is interning this year and identify as POCI, disabled, trans and/or non-binary, we invite you to register for this free retreat, along with your supervisor. The retreat will be held in Chicago starting on Monday, November 11 at noon and ending on Tuesday, November 12 at 3 PM. We’ll spend time during the retreat all together, as breakout groups of supervisors and interns and in intern/supervisor pairs.

Programming for interns will focus on:
● relationship building
● spiritual practice
● discernment and formation support
● navigating dynamics of systemic oppression in your internship
● building capacity for resilience and strengthening networks of support

Programming for internship supervisors will focus on:
● supervision across difference
● noticing and understanding the impact that systemic oppression may have upon the intern
and the internship and developing capacity for support and response
● planning to bring the learning back home, especially to internship committees

We are thrilled to have faithful, talented and deeply experienced leadership for this retreat:

Working with intern supervisors: Dr. Janice Marie Johnson and Rev. Julie Taylor
Working with interns: Rev. Dr. Hope Johnson and Rev. Dr. Adam Robersmith
Chaplain for the retreat: Rev. Chris Long
Presenting on how the Ministerial Fellowship Committee is working to decenter whiteness and counter oppression in their functioning: Rev. David Pettee
