Mary Foster Parmer, the creator and overseer of Invite*Welcome*Connect — an evangelism, hospitality, and ongoing pastoral care project within and for Episcopal churches everywhere — is hosting the initiative’s fourth summit. This will take place at the University of the South, Sewanee, TN on June 12-14, 2019. The forum’s audience is for all leaders within the church who are involved with, not just church growth, but practicing sustainable and ongoing, vital ministries which speak to long-standing worshipers too.
This forum will highlight, with keynote speakers, how to engage Newcomer Ministries as part of an overall, intentional evangelism program which can be tailored for local parishes. St. James’ Episcopal Church, along with the Brandywine Deanery of The Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania, was fortunate to bring Mary to our parish in September of 2017.
St. James’ is committed to continuing its work, prayers, and ministry around Invite*Welcome*Connect, and will be seeking more involvement from the broader parish in 2019.
