Parish Leadership Day 2017
Saturday, March 18
Return to Purpose and...
W e've planned this day as a follow-up to our annual convention. In his address Bishop Fisher asked us all to "return to purpose" and "double-down on prayer."

So the Rev. Jay Sidebotham will offer the keynote address: 

"Spiritual Growth in the Episcopal Church:
Where are we spiritually? Where are we headed? What's getting in the way? What are the signs of hope?"

Two workshops will be offered twice so all participants will share the same experience.

  • "Best Practices That Contribute To Spiritual Growth" Presented by Jay Sidebotham
  • "Learning to Lead Again: Mission, Leadership and Community" Presented by Mike Wagner
