We are excited to announce that registration is now open for our 2015 GEMN Global Mission Conference to be held May 6-8, at All Saints' Episcopal Church in vibrant, midtown Atlanta, Georgia. Visit www.gemn.org for more information and to register.
Do you want to get involved with global mission but don't know where to begin? Are you interested in a broader conversation about what global mission looks like in our changing world? Do you have a mission project to share? Do you want to learn how to start a mission ministry? GEMN's 2015 Global Mission Conference is for you! The theme for this year's conference is "Proclaiming God's Peace Through Mission", and there is no better place to explore this issue than in Atlanta, home of Martin Luther King Jr., an area rich in peace and justice ministries combined with a long history of extensive global mission engagement.
The 2015 conference will explore topics such as:
- Building Peace Ministries
- Reconciliation & Mission
- Global Economic Justice
- Creating a Mission Program in your Church or Diocese
- Mission Budgets and Financing
- Asset-Based Development in Mission
- Human Trafficking and Other Human Rights Ministries
- Ministry in a Muslim Context
- How to Tell Your Mission Story
A centerpiece of the conference will be a field trip to the Martin Luther King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, as well as opportunities to network with prominent global mission partners from throughout the church. The conference will include: plenary sessions with outstanding speakers, hands-on workshops, daily small group experience, daily worship opportunities, displays on global mission topics and organizations, and more.
Also in 2015, GEMN is celebrating "Twenty Years of Global Mission"! This year's conference will include a special reception and celebration dinner to honor past and present members who have had a passion for mission in the Episcopal Church. We hope that you will join us in Atlanta. Register at www.gemn.org today!
