Ellipsis Conference

In partnership with the Association of Presbyterian Tentmakers

November 1-3, 2013

Being in ministry today is often more than just taking on the role of a pastor. Come and build community with people who want to do pastoral ministry… and something else. Learn how to tell your vocational story to inspire others. Decode the structures that impact non-traditional ways of being in ministry and meet people who are making it happen. This conference is for long-time tentmakers, bi-vocational pastors, seminary students, and all those who want to help create new stories of serving God in ministry.
