Living the Welcome

A large part (albeit not the most visible part) of the Emerging Spirit campaign
is focused on congregational training and support.

AS a part of this there are a series of training events being held across the country (24 per year for 3 years). One of these is being held in Thunder Bay on April 27 and 28. It would be great if we could get a group of about 3 people from Riverview to attend.

These Living the Welcome events are designed to help congregations develop themselves as a welcoming place. Their own words:

Living the Welcome will assist congregations in:

  • discerning the contour of their local context and their call to a ministry of welcoming,
  • identifying the key conditions for developing a welcoming environment,
  • discovering the key strategies, tactics, and resources for creative and faithful leadership in a welcoming congregation,
  • renewing the sense of possibility and joy for local ministries.

As a part of the event participants can choose to go to 2 (out of 5 possible) workshops. Registration is done online at the link above. Each workshop is limited to 100 participants. If you have any questions please contact Gord at the office.
