The Commissioned Pastors Network of the Synod of the Sun presents the Empowering Commissioned Pastors Conference to be held May 13th-16th, 2020, at Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church, Richardson Texas (Dallas - Fort Worth area).
This conference will be all about and for Commissioned Pastors in all the varied circumstances and ways that CPs serve the Church.
PC(USA) Co-Moderators Rev. Cindy Kohlmann and RE Vilmarie Cintrón-Olivieri will be there to help lead plenary sessions and the event will also feature excellent workshops that will support Commissioned Pastors and strengthen skills and ministries. This conference is focused on Empowering Commissioned Pastors as they serve an increasing portion of our PCUSA congregations.
Limited scholarships are available on a first-request basis, offered only to Commissioned Pastors (CPs, CLPs, CREs, etc.)
JHaMS at AC is four-day retreat for rising 6th-9th grade students sponsored by Austin College, Grace Presbytery and the Prairie Valley Legacy Fund of FPC/Fort Worth.
During the day, participants at this event do service projects, worship, get connected in small groups and play together. At night, we all get to stay in dorm rooms at Austin College.
Our keynote speakers and event musicians are The Many. This collective does more than simply concerts... they create experiences in which they weave together music, words, images, and liturgy into an engaging, participatory, transformational event. (https://www.themanyarehere.com)
Our theme this year is I Got You. Based on Psalm 139, we will focus on God’s love of all of us, in all our differences, and bringing home the idea that we can be honestly who we are, with all our questions and doubt and fears.
God gets you. And loves you. Inside. Outside. Through and through.
