If you have ever wondered whether you might be called to start a new worshiping community, this day is for you.
This day blends vision casting and stories from people who are involved in starting one of the PC(USA)’s 1001 New Worshiping Communities followed by round table discussion and an opportunity to begin dreaming—and discerning—about what God might be calling you, your church, or your Presbytery to do.
Who should attend:
Anyone who has interest or questions about the 1001 New Worshiping Communities initiative, especially: presbytery leaders, congregational leaders, teaching elders and ruling elders, COM and CPM members, seminary students and faculty, church planters, and churches interested in starting new communities.
