What is a Host Site and how does my organization become one?
Becoming a TEL Host Site is more than simply providing space and access to a virtual classroom experience. As a host site, your congregation can become a community center for gathering adult learners who want to deepen their theological and spiritual knowledge, and explore new avenues of learning and sharing a progressive perspective of Christian faith and practice. Our hope is that TEL host sites will build a community of learners within a regional cohort context.
For further information on how to become a Host Site, contact Rev. Janice Sommerville at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-849-8284.
