2019 Theme: A Christian Response to Rising Violence in the World
Our world seems to be getting more violent each day. How can we as Christian leaders respond? This Fall Convocation will look at violence in the world, ways to be advocates for peace, change and legislation to get at some of the root causes of rising violence. Leave with practical ways to lead your congregation in discussion and action. Keynote address, table discussion, panel discussion and opportunity to learn from one another are all pieces of this day. Bring your church leaders to begin the conversations or to further the conversations you’re already having. This event is open to everyone interested in the work of peace!
