Description

Church staff, clergy & volunteers are invited to this day-long event designed to provide resources, inspiration, opportunities for collaboration, and ample soul care.

We'll start the day with a continental breakfast and then get rolling with our keynote speaker, the witty and wise Bev Gaines, speaking on Self Care: Soul Care. Bev is a spiritual director and life coach with two decades' experience working in Episcopal and other church settings.

Next we'll move into lively workshops; choose your own adventure with topics from four different tracks:

  • Best Practices in Children & Families Formation, hosted by the Diocesan Children’s Commission

Halfway through the day we'll break for a delicious lunch and do some regional networking.

We'll close with a simple service -- complete with music -- to send you back into the world, refreshed and ready to take on your faith formation programming for 2019-20!
