Led by the Spirit: Together in Conversation
Join Bishop Michael Burk as he leads a time of conversation focused on creating a deeper understanding of what it means to walk together as we are Led by the Spirit to fulfill the mission of Christ’s church.
In addition to time in a large group setting, each gathering will also provide opportunity for congregations within each conference to engage with one another, form connections, and make decisions. Each conference is responsible for nominations and elections to the synod council, Churchwide Assembly in August 2016, and other committees.
This event combines the annual conference assembly and The Evening with the Bishop from prior years.
