CRANBURY—The Rev. Karin R. Mitchell, Rector of St. David’s Episcopal Church in Cranbury has been chosen as one of 28 participants in the twenty-sixth class of the Clergy Leadership Project to take place in West Cornwall, Conn. Several hundred clergy were nominated from across the nation and participants were selected on the basis of talent, experience, geography, leadership ability, and other criteria.
The Clergy Leadership Project is a national initiative formed to develop and strengthen clergy leaders, supporting new visions for vigorous ministries in their congregations and communities as well as support their personal growth. Trinity Church, Wall Street in New York City and The Episcopal Church Foundation initially funded this leadership model. Today Trinity Church is the sole sponsor of the project.
Rev. Mitchell will be attending a six day conference, April 18-23 and will continue to meet with her clergy colleagues for another three sessions as they prepare to equip themselves for the vigorous task of leading the church in the 21st century.
Rev. Mitchell was recently elected President of the Standing Committee of the Diocese of New Jersey, headquartered in Trenton. The Standing Committee acts as a council of advice for the Bishop and also functions as a check and balance. Its advice and consent is needed for various appointments made by the Bishop and for the expenditure of certain trust funds. It must approve all candidates for ordination to the diaconate and priesthood, and votes on behalf of the Diocese in the process for approving the election of all bishops of the Episcopal Church.
