How Does Evangelism, Global Mission, & Racial Reconciliation Thrive in Your Church?

Here's a photo album courtesy of Ansley Brackin from the Networking event last Friday. We had excellent speakers present 30 minute sessions on evangelism, global ministries, and racial reconciliation ministries.

Winston Worrell of World Methodist Evangelism Institute had just returned from training in Haiti and shared a holistic Methodist understanding and practice of evangelism.

Judy Chung spoke to us about the move of UMC Global Ministries to Atlanta and what is happening in the our international denomination with missionaries- short term and long term- who go from "everywhere to everywhere."

Kevin Murriel offered practical insight into ways individuals and congregations can, and should, be active in racial reconciliation in our communities (here's one interview to give you an idea).

We'll share recordings of the day in the near future. Today, I'm thinking back to last Friday, and am once again thankful! These colleagues, and friends, are exceptional presenters, and your congregation would do well to consider them to help your congregation grow stronger in ministry.
