Friday – Saturday, Feb. 6th– 7th 2015
at Monroe Camp & Retreat Center
Every Presbyterian Church wants to gain new members, but this is hard to do without a larger sense of calling and purpose. Come rediscover and reclaim our common calling to evangelism! Evangelism is the good news of God’s healing and saving love in Jesus Christ. Evangelism is a lifestyle in which a follower of Jesus Christ both shares faith and serves others in need. Come hear Ray Jones address how Presbyterian congregations can reclaim and engage our primary commission from Christ!
Ray Jones is the Associate for Evangelism in the Presbyterian Church (USA), and has played a large part in creating the Engage curriculum, which helps congregants put their faith into action in their community.
The Engaging Evangelism Retreat is only $10 for members of Presbytery.
