About this event

"From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. " Acts 17:26

"Atula egwu; n'ihi na gi ka M'nọyere: M'gēme ka nkpuru-gi si n'Ọwuwa-anyanwu bia, M'gēsi kwa n'Ọdida-anyanwu chikọta gi; M'gāsi Ugwu, Nye; si kwa Ndida, Eb͕ochila: me ka umum ndikom si n'ebe di anya bia, gi me kwa ka umum ndinyom si na nsọtu uwa bia" (Aisaia 43:5-6, Igbo)

Come to the first-annual family gathering for immigrants, immigrant leaders and those seeking to partner with the diaspora community in the C4SO family! At this relationally-rich event, we will experience the richness of diaspora cultures and languages and be encouraged and equipped for diaspora mininstry in addition to learning from diaspora leaders present in our diocese.

Special Guests and Presenters include: Dr. Bulus Galadima (Nigeria/USA), Bp. Todd Hunter, Bp. Flavio Adair (Brazil), the Rev. Kimberly Deckel, Rev. Teesha Hadra, the Rev. Jose and Carmen Zurita.

It's never been a better time to join a God and an immigrant people on the move!
