Rethinking Evangelism

October 12–14, 2020AdultContinuing EducationVirtualWorship
Program in partnership with Theology, Formation & Evangelism ministries in the Presbyterian Mission Agency

Montreat Conference Center is partnering with Theology, Formation & Evangelism in the Presbyterian Mission Agency to offer an opportunity to Rethink Evangelism in October of 2020.

This three-day virtual event will be designed for church leaders and congregational members to reconsider what effective evangelism might look like in their particular neighborhoods and communities. We will intentionally seek the wisdom of 1,001 New Worshiping Communities as well as congregations working in the Vital Congregations initiative as we create an interactive platform for sharing the practices and lifestyles, individual and corporate, that allow people to effectively share the good news.
