Event description
Synod is a Diocesan gathering of the leaders, both ordained & lay, who can expect to be inspired, encouraged, taught & trained for ministry.

About this event

This year’s Annual Synod will feature The Rt. Rev. Kevin Bond Allen, Bishop of the Diocese of Cascadia and Dean of the College of Bishops Affairs, as our Plenary Speaker. We will gather on Friday night for our opening Eucharist so that we might worship together and on Saturday we will provide intensives and MAST (Mission, Action, Support Training) Talks on key subjects in hope of equipping lay leaders for ministry in the Local Church. (Please see a bulleted schedule of the Synod below)

Note: On Saturday, you will need to choose either a MAST talk or an Intensive. Cohort meetings also overlap some Intensives. Look carefully at the time!
