The call to ministry – either in a volunteer, part-time, local church community or as a full-time vocation on the international mission field – is a process filled with questions. Deciphering what that “feeling” means “to be called” often requires the help and direction of others to understand how it will manifest in a practical and objective sense for your life.
The First Steps
Andy Geffers, our Director of Church & Leadership Advancement, who focuses on global missions and international partnerships, will be hosting a weekend gathering to help those within our district find their path as they heed the call God is developing in their lives.
This interactive Gathering is open to anyone! High schoolers in grades 11 & 12, college students, second career people, retirees and everyone in between. You and others with similar callings will spend time with representatives from C&MA Candidate Development, Alliance New England, Alliance International Workers, and those who are in the process to become an International Worker.
The event will be held at our Envision Providence location in Providence, Rhode Island over the Saturday and Sunday weekend of August 10-11. The cost for the weekend is $50, and registration can be done through our ANE site here. Please do not let the cost of the weekend prevent you from attending. Scholarship funds are available for those in need of financial assistance. Please contact Andy Geffers for more information.
