You are invited to the third national Invite Welcome Connect Summit, held at the University of the South in beautiful Sewanee, Tennessee, June 12–14. This gathering will be a wonderful opportunity for newcomers and seasoned practitioners alike to learn, share ideas, and further explore this powerful ministry. The summit will consist of worship, plenary talks, presentations, workshops for both first-timers and experienced practitioners, and opportunities for fellowship and networking, all with the goal of going deeper into the practicalities and theological truths of each aspect of this ministry: Invite, Welcome, and Connect.
Invite Welcome Connect is a transformational ministry that equips and empowers clergy and lay leaders to cultivate intentional practices of evangelism, hospitality, and connectedness rooted in the Gospel imperative to “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). Designed to accommodate congregations of all sizes, Invite Welcome Connect has been integrated into 45 dioceses of The Episcopal Church, seminaries, colleges, and other parts of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
