Leaders of new church plants or missional initiatives along with applicants for Church Planting and Missional Enterprise Zone grants are invited to the inaugural Genesis Gathering of the Episcopal Church on Nov. 16-17 at the Church of the Ascension, Dallas. The event is sponsored by the church’s Advisory Group on Church Planting.
“The Genesis Gathering is a community of passionate, faithful people starting new Episcopal churches and worshiping communities,” said the Rev. Zachary Nyein of the advisory group. “We are a community of practice that gathers online and in-person to share in learning, nourishment, prayer, storytelling, and fellowship.”
The two-day conference begins Nov. 16 with worship and dinner, followed by introductions and conversations. Nov. 17 will focus on roundtable conversations and networking.
“This Genesis Gathering will have a particular focus on How to Get Started, what planters should do when they are at the very beginning of starting a new ministry,” said the Rev. Jane Gerdsen, who leads the advisory group. “We will have talks and group sessions for people starting both traditional and nontraditional ministries.”
