Get excited about the many opportunities for engaging God's mission in today's post-modern and post-Christian culture in North America, as Anglicans! As the giftings of our Anglican heritage, when broken open and given fresh expression in ways that are accessible within today's culture, are uniquely able to speak deeply into the hearts, minds and souls of postmodern seekers.
~Discover 'ancient-new' ways to engage emerging /fresh expressions of church and mission in your parish and diocese.
Learn and Explore together in community 'peer2peer.' Share your experiences with others and receive training and practical resources for engaging the 'Five Marks of Mission' of the Anglican Consultative Council and the Five Strategic Mission Priorities of the Episcopal Church within the Great Emergence':
~Evangelism/proclaiming the Good News of Christ, Reaching youth and young adults, Leadership for mission, Strengthening congregations, Worship, music and liturgy.
~Take part in Episcopal Village (EpV) as new missional network and community of support within TEC.
Ancient wisdom proclaims 'It takes a village to raise a child.' - What if this wisdom were applied to the church? What if we cultivated 'mission shaped dioceses' across the Episcopal Church (and the Anglican Church in Canada) prepared and excited for the labor of birthing new and fresh expressions of church, and raising up next generations pioneer missioners to help lead us within the 'Great Emergence'? - The Episcopal Village network, community and events aim to provide support for 'a village approach to mission' to be cultivated and resourced in TEC.
We look forward to gathering with you in conversation and hopeful dreaming. REGISTER ONLINE HERE at http://www.epvwest.eventbrite.com
