Nearly 2,000 Presbyterian pastors, elders, and lay leaders, representing more than 830 U.S. congregations, are in Minneapolis for the inaugural Gathering of The Fellowship of Presbyterians. Today we shared in worship, small group discussions, and heard ideas and vision from pastors serving in a variety of ministry contexts around the country. Dr. Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Seminary, offered a keynote address. Tomorrow we’ll continue the conversations in break-out sessions. The two-day Gathering invites Presbyterians to examine new ways for churches to be in relationship with each other and the denomination.
