Intentionally Christian: Fostering Engaged Communities
June 23 through June 26, 2011
The 2011 Ohio Episcopal Celebration at Kenyon addresses a challenge facing the Episcopal Church today: What kinds of communities is the Spirit birthing today? What new ministries and new models are in the Church's present and future? How can we nurture engaged communities in our midst?
The conference will take place Thursday evening, June 23 through Sunday, June 26 on the campus of Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio.
Be a part of this exciting opportunity to rise to the challenge of being intentionally Christian in a society that threatens to leave the Church behind. Learn how some churches have built relational, supportive groups centered on the ministry of Jesus Christ and the movment of the Spirit. And then be a part of the movement yourself!
