In January 2014 the Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF) launched a pilot program called Vital Teams, the long-term vision of which is of an Episcopal Church where all congregations can receive highly effective team leadership training. Since its launch, ECF has developed and successfully piloted a new Vital Teams curriculum that focuses on the three areas that effective leadership teams are constantly balancing: strong relationships, clear process, and a focus on results.
