We are pleased to welcome the Rev. Susan Finck to lead a 2019 National Gathering workshop entitled Growing the Church in the Power of the Holy Spirit. Much is written about listening prayer and the Holy Spirit’s guidance for individuals. But how can we truly cooperate with the Holy Spirit as a session or ministry leadership team? How can we truly embrace God’s sovereign leadership of our local church in various specific expressions, thus “keeping in step” with the Spirit?
The Fellowship Community has always held that theological teaching is an important aspect of our call as the Church. That’s why we are pleased to welcome Professor Adam Neder to the 2019 National Gathering to lead the workshop, Theology as a Way of Life: On the Art of Teaching the Christian Faith.
In our journey toward a transformed world reflecting God’s justice and peace, there are far too many who face a constant, tangible, very real threat: everyday violence. At this 2019 National Gathering, during the session “God’s Justice in Action: Defending the World’s Most Vulnerable” we session will examine this hidden plague that is destroying lives and undermining the fight against poverty in the developing world.
The Church is not immune from the cultural crisis that has come to be known as the #MeToo movement, as women speak up about sexual harassment. How does this issue affect the Church? At the 2019 National Gathering we will approach this important topic.
