Annual Conference on July 3-7 in Greensboro, N.C., will focus on compelling vision conversations as the main event for three days of business sessions. The conversations to be held in small groups at round tables will include the delegate body and those nondelegates who registered ahead of time to take part.

Also being shared as a resource is a “Messenger” article titled “Hope for the Future,” that first appeared in January. It reported on the compelling vision conversations that took place at the 2018 Conference.

“We think it is important for people to read both in preparation for Annual Conference, since the conversation to take place at Annual Conference this year will build on the conversations that took place last year at Annual Conference and throughout the year in the districts,” said team chair Rhonda Pittman Gingrich. “They are good reading for anyone who cares about the church and the compelling vision process.”
