Event Details

Come be a part of a new generation of leadership in the Episcopal Church as we pray, work, and grow into the leadership of a missionary church. Within the beautiful surroundings of the Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, we will build on the momentum of spontaneous gatherings that started in the summer of 2012. They created a movement that has since spread around the country.

Acts 8 seeks the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the creative renewal of the Episcopal Church. We take our inspiration from the church’s great historic missionary societies, but with a greater flair for modern communications. 

Our movement is not yet fully formed. At this mission gathering, we aim to more clearly discern our specific mission and determine what we are uniquely called to do. Discernment sessions will be interspersed with workshops on missionary prayer, reinvigorating existing communities, and planting new church entities. And of course, plenty of time for prayer and community building.

Lay and clergy participation is encouraged.

Prior involvement in Acts 8 is not required or expected.
