    Walk of Accompaniment

    Participants develop and learn new models for reaching the “peripheries”- those on the geographical, social , political, and economic margins.  As church leaders, we seek to learn about models of accompaniment, including apprenticeships, companionship, and mentoring.

        The Journey continues…with hope, courage & joy

        Participants unpack the themes of encounter, accompany, and proclaim with a hopeful, courageous, and joyful heart.  Challenged by the early disciples in their brave responses to “Come Follow Me,” which required the abandoning of all they knew and owned, even those they loved.  Participants will reflect on what steps need to be taken to say YES! to following Jesus and sharing the Gospel with God’s people in today’s realities.
