Stewards and Servants of God’s Mission

This conference is for all who are currently serving as Parish Ministry Associates, students enrolled in the Parish Ministry Education Program, and for lay leaders who are interested in the program or learning more about how to be better equipped stewards and servants of God’s mission in their own communities. 


As stewards and servants of God’s mission it is important that we continue to grow in our understanding of God and God’s mission in the world, in our own leadership skills, and ways in which we can help God’s people connect with this mission in the world.  In addition to time learning together, this is also an opportunity for Parish Ministry Associates and students, as well as other leaders, to connect with one another, experience fellowship and worship together.
