Conference content

A planning group led by Carrie Boren Headington, Missioner for Evangelism in the Diocese of Dallas, and Anne Rudacille Schmidt of the Forward Movement Board are finalizing the schedule. A detailed schedule and list of workshops will be available shortly.

Among the planned activities are a keynote address by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, plus plenary sessions and workshops by evangelism leaders. 

The conference will offer workshops both for those who are new to sharing their faith and for confident evangelists looking for fresh resources.

Plans call for a portion of the events to be live webcast to allow for individual and group viewing during conventions, discussion groups, and local evangelism gatherings.
