Big Tent: Called to a Movement Beyond Institution
Expand your horizons of faith and engagement in God’s mission at PC(USA)’s 2019 Big Tent, August 1-3 in Baltimore. The theme–based on Romans 12:2, Called to a Movement beyond Institution will emphasize our hope of the Gospel and its power to challenge institutional conventions.

Opportunities are endless at Big Tent; sessions cover mission, stewardship, earth care, advocacy, art, and race relations.  Download the schedule of events  to view all Big Tent activities.

Events to note:
  • William. P. Brown, former Old Testament faculty at Union Presbyterian Seminary, will lead the Bible Study plenary sessions.
  • Haiti Mission Network with Cindy Corell will hold a meeting open to all on July 30 as a pre-conference activity.
  • Camp Hanover will operate age-appropriate programs for children and youth from ages 6 to 17. There will be a separate program for infants and toddlers.

The registration fee is a modest $95. Housing and meals are on your own. Some financial support is available from the World Mission ministry of Presbytery of the James. Email  Mary Jane Winter  for more information.
