Owning the Church for the future

While the world shifts and changes around us, our God remains constant, and our Commission is far more vital than ever.

Let’s start here:
•    our ministry grounds have changed, and
•    our churches are hungry for a new vision.

At this year’s annual gathering, we will ask God to pool our energy, creativity, and collaborative spirits to workshop innovative ways of reaching out to our communities. How do we present the Gospel to a new generation of curious seekers and believers?

We will bookend our discussion with worship that fills our souls and affirms our steadfast call to ministry in God’s holy church.
