CTM Intensive Nuts and Bolts

Commitment: CTM Intensives are a three-year commitment. We offer two intensives a year for three years.

Organizational Host: The intensives require an organization or network who sees it as part of their mission to help nurture a network of grassroots leaders for a given community. As such they need to have the capacity to promote, organize, offer some follow up and help raise funds for the intensives.

Cohort Size: The ideal size of a cohort is between 25-50 participants.

Intensive Facilities Requirements:

  1. Roundtables open – discussion format for 25-50 participants
  2. Screen for data projector
  3. Data Projector if available
  4. Speakers – sound system
  5. White board/Dry Erase Markers.

Food: Light/easy to prepare and serve/healthy food (expect $10 a head)

Lodging: Single rooms for facilitators at local modest hotel.

Flight: 1-2 flights Booked by CTM.

Local Transportation: Provided by host.

Registration: All participants provide name, contact info and email…this provides a local database for the network and CTM database.

Intensive Materials: Host is expected to make copies of intensive handouts for participants.

Promotion: CTM provides flyers. The goal is to see an ecumenical, multicultural gathering of leaders serving high-risk populations.

Follow-up: Roundtable discussions.

Suggested Participant Fees: $25 per participant (North American Context).

Costs: This fee structure is based on the North American context and requires a host organization who works with CTM to raise these funds.

Masters Degree Fees: Available on Masters Program Page.

 


Generic Schedule Options

Option # 1 Evening Intensives

This is designed so that volunteers and other professionals who work during the day can attend the intensives. Generally speaking the evening format works best when trying gather a cross-section of the community.

Thursday:

  • Morning – Free
  • Lunch/Afternoon – A short “vision trip” Facilitators see context. It is important that facilitators get to see ministry contexts. It’s an important way we do “research.”
  • Late Afternoon - Prep
  • 6:00-9:30 Intensive (light dinner provided)

Friday:

  • Morning - Free
  • Lunch with Masters Students (if any)
  • Facilitators have afternoon free for prep or vision trip.
  • 6:00 – 9:30 Intensive (light dinner provided)

Saturday:

  •  9:00 – 3:00 Intensive (coffee and light lunch provided)
  • Optional Dinner afterwards: This is a great way to just hang out and build community.

Follow Up: If there are masters students taking the intensives for credit there will need to be additional seat-time hours. This can be achieved by staying additional days or over follow up conference calls depending on what works best.
