EC 2022 Clergy pictorial directory pictures will be taken on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday. Credentialed clergy and invited others will be contacted with an assigned picture day and time.

There is only one Equipping Experience this year in which everyone will participate. Room’s will be assigned by District, see registration packet at sign-in for Thursday’s room assignments.

Movements of God have moving parts and when those parts move in harmony with him and one another, great things happen! This year’s equipping experience is designed to help each pastor and delegate identify their unique spiritual gifting and how those gifts work together in team ministry in order to accomplish the mission of knowing Christ and making Him known to our neighbors.

Each pastor and lay delegate will be guided through a process of identifying and understanding their spiritual gifts and ministry team styles, equipping us as a movement of God that knows Christ and makes Him known in deeper and broader ways.

Additional information on completing the Grip-Birkman assessment will be released to each participant shortly.
