Event description
Visit the land of the sky in beautiful Western NC where inspiration is plentiful, as we explore collaboration as the future of the church.

About this Event

Gather with progressive faith leaders to bear witness to existing collaborative partnerships, engage in conversations and dialogue about the intersection of institutions and movement, and imagine future collaborations for their own context.

This event is organized to highlight collaboration in a variety of contexts. People of faith who seek to forward a more just and generous faith will explore ground-breaking partnerships, the space where movements and institutions intersect, and opportunities to solve critical community issues through the collaboration of faith communities, movements for justice and the government.

Hosted by Land of the Sky United Church of Christ in collaboration with the Southern Conference of the UCC.

Contributors Include: The Rev. John Dorhauer, the Rev. Patrick Duggan, the Rev. Erica Williams, the Rev. Jasmine Beach-Ferrara (Buncombe County Commissioner), Mayor Esther Manheimer (City of Asheville), the Rev. Sharon Ellis Davis, the Rev. John Myers, the Rev. Luke Lingle, the Rev. Milly Morrow, the Rev. Shannon Spence, the Rev. Marcia Mount Shoop, Matt Addis, the Rev. Sara Wilcox and many more.
