We invite you to browse through the attached program information for Mission Connections: Listening to all voices, our presbytery’s annual mission summit.
We have planned a most pleasant morning starting with a continental breakfast. Our host site pastor the Rev. Dr. Steve Ranney will open us in prayer at 8:30 am and Reggie Goodjoin and the New Hope Praise Team will lead us in worship. Our keynote speaker is the Rev. Laura Cheifetz from Presbyterian Publishing Corporation. Then, you can choose to attend one of three breakout sessions led by 1) Rev. Lynn Gifford from St. Mark Presbyterian Church, 2) Ms. Syuzanna Petrosyan from the Institute of Armenian Studies, University of Southern California, and 3) Dr. Anita Coleman of Charis Research.
Breakouts will not be repeated this year in order to accommodate your requests that we allot more time for Exhibits and Networking. We are delighted that so many people are participating in this, showcasing their ministries and sharing their passion for mission. A list of the confirmed exhibitors and descriptions of the keynote and breakout sessions is included below. Updates will be posted on the Mission Connections blog.
We invite you to register ASAP. The Summit is free and online registration is now open at Evite.
Volunteers are welcome! If you have a gift or interest in photography, hospitality, writing, blogging and/or serving in any other way, please check the volunteer box when you register online. Your generous service will make Mission Connections a meaningful experience for all. Thank you.
Looking forward to spending time with old friends and making new ones as we learn, share, serve and enjoy one another in Christ,
Anita Coleman on behalf of the Summit Planning Team
