2019 Missional Voices National Gathering

Thursday, June 13, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, June 15, 2019 (All day)

The 2019 Missional Voices National Gathering brings together church leaders, seminarians, church planters, entrepreneurs, artists, and everyday innovators to discuss innovative ministries and missional communities both within and outside of the traditional church context. This year’s focus will be on what we can learn about God’s mission from those engaged in difficult situations. We'll hear from people leading refugee resettlement agencies, campus ministries, a worshipping community inside a prison, parishes after natural disasters, and more.

Missional Voices is a weekend of thinking, planning, and dreaming about the future ministry in The Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion. It is a place where dynamic incubation of new ideas is the norm – not the exception – and people doing uncommon ministry find support and encouragement.

Register today and join the conversation!

Cost: $99; registration is free to current seminarians or students in local formation programs

Where: Christ Church Cathedral (New Orleans, LA)

Thursday, June 13
What gifts do our communities offer? What assets exist in our neighborhoods? Where is God already working among us? When individuals and parishes go through disasters, they learn to view their communities in new ways. Leaders from Episcopal Relief & Development will guide us through some practices to help us do that same work, before a disaster happens.

Friday, June 14
Six innovative voices will share their stories, and then we will reflect together on where we see God at work in those stories. We'll hear from people leading parishes, refugee resettlement agencies, campus ministries, a worshipping community inside a prison, and more.

Saturday, June15
This is where we get to practice what we've learned. On Saturday, leaders from around the church will guide us through hands-on learning sessions where we get to learn tools and strategies to help us in our communities.
