The Head Facilitator (HF) Training kicked off in the United States in the first quarter of this year. Linda Harding, from the Kairos International Leadership Team, travelled throughout the U.S. to conduct the training. The new two-day training module is geared specifically for up and coming Kairos HFs, but it is also an opportunity for HFs trained up under the previous Kairos 3rd Edition to get valuable training and be on the same page as everyone in Kairos moves forward with the 4th Edition.
Team Expansion welcomed her to the Emerald Hills campus in Louisville, Kentucky with a group of 30 participants, all at different points of being or becoming a Kairos Head Facilitator, eager to receive the training.
Emerald Hills in Kentucky also hosted an inaugural meeting for the United States National Coordination Team (NCT). Kairos has seen substantial growth in the U.S. in the last couple of years and it was time for the formation of an NCT. The NCT oversees the promotion and vitality of the growing Kairos movement.
Several key people from Team Expansion were joined by other coordinators from Kairos hubs in the U.S. including Oregon, Florida, and Hawaii. Representatives from Mexico and the Caribbean also came. The team consists of Eric Barry (National Coordinator) together with Joshua Rodenbaugh, Allan Witkowski, Tim Stapleton from Team Expansion, as well as Randy Mishler from Portland and Alex Gomez from Mexico (representing the Kairos Spanish language translation), Pat Mamaclay from Hawaii, Maria Lilian de Jesus and Rosalina Butao from Miami, and Clifton and Pearl Charles from the Caribbean. A solid groundwork has been laid and they are moving forward with a stronger network and clearer focus than ever before.
