Event Details

DESCRIPTION

Clergy Conference 2019, “Becoming Good Soil: Healthy Clergy and Healthy Congregations,” takes up the theme of our Diocesan Strategic Planning Process and will occur May 7-9 at the Claggett Center. We’re excited about this year’s dynamic agenda -- you’ll leave Clergy Conference spiritually invigorated and equipped with a host of implementable ideas.

 

 
 The Rev. Jason Prati is unable to be with us at clergy conference due to a pastoral situation at his congregation. Please keep him in your prayers and know that we hope to bring his wisdom to the diocese at a later time. 

 

We are grateful to announce the Rev. Jay Sidebotham has accepted our invitation to join us on Tuesday, May 7 for our afternoon and evening sessions. Jay is the Director of RenewalWorks, a program for refocusing parishes on spiritual vitality many of our congregations have participated in. 
 

 

Jay will talk about Renewalworks’ most recent research on the spiritual vitality of Episcopal churches. He'll also share with us stories of how parishes with whom he’s worked have enjoyed growth in membership and spiritual vitality using many of the principals of RenewalWorks. 

 


As a follow-up to last year’s clergy conference -- where we investigated how churches can become “Unstuck” -- we are bringing back Nancy Beach, who spoke at January’s Diocesan Convention about “Healthy Congregations.”


The Rev. Dr. Robert Phillips, Senior Associate for Congregational Leadership and Care for the Diocese of Washington, will lead a discussion on healthy clergy and congregational practices.  


Bishop Mariann will provide an overview of the State of the Diocese as we continue in this year’s Strategic Planning Process.  

 

The Rev. Jason Prati is unable to be with us at clergy conference due to a pastoral situation at his congregation. Please keep him in your prayers and know that we hope to bring his wisdom to the diocese at a later time.
