Deadline Extended for New ForMission Cohort

ForMission Participants

The Conference has extended the deadline to apply to this year's new ForMission cohort until Tuesday, February 2, 2021. The current health pandemic necessitated we alter our scheduled program dates and move to a virtual format in May/June 2021. We hope to move back to in-person gatherings after the May/June session if health and safelty guidelines allow.

The new ForMission cohort will convene for a day-long virtual orientation on Sunday, March 21, 2021. Additionally, the group will be offered other opportunities to engage with the content and each other prior to the May/June gathering. 

See the attached document (above and to the left) for the program application, letter of recommendation guidelines, and commitment form. 

In addition to these application materials, a digital picture of the applicant (jpg/png format) should be sent to  

If you have questions about beginning with the new group this spring please contact Ellen Dauwer, SC, Executive Director, by email at
