Over the past four years, Ohio Conference has held a missional conference immediately prior to Annual Conference Assembly. This year there will not be a missional conference in March. Instead, the Conference will hold a summer missional festival, Engaging Mission 2020.
This missional festival will take place at Bluffton University June 26-28. Featured presenters will be Seth and Theresa Crissman of Virginia Mennonite Missions. (See http://bit.ly/VMMCrissmans for more information about the Crissmans.)
Engaging Mission 2020 is a weekend designed to give participants an introduction to missional living. They will be challenged to create space for mission in their everyday lives.
Participants will enjoy worship led by the worship team from Huber Mennonite Church and input from Seth and Theresa Crissman. There also will be several breakout opportunities for discussion, service and neighborhood-related activities.
Engaging Mission 2020 is for people of all ages, including family groups. It will be a bilingual event in English and Spanish.
