RJ Ministry Community of Practice > Deepening Circles

CMN’s “Deepening Circles” are bimonthly virtual gatherings for emerging and experienced RJ Ministry practitioners to reflect together on important themes and common challenges  of restorative justice implementation. 

Deepening Circles are offered through CMN’s RJ Ministry Community of Practice. Learn more here >>

What to Expect

CMN’s virtual Deepening Circles are held every other month on a Wednesday evening from 7:30–9 p.m. ET (4:30–6 p.m. PT). Circles begin with prayer, an icebreaker, and a large-group presentation on the given month’s theme. After the presentation, participants break out into small-group reflection circles with fellow RJ ministry practitioners from similar contexts. 

Through interactive activities and resources, participants come away from each Deepening Circle with new RJ tools and ideas to practice with their community or ministry group.

Upcoming Deepening Circles

Deepening Circles are free to attend. Participants are asked to sign up individually, not as a group. Future themes and presenters will be informed by the expressed hopes, needs, and gifts of the group.
