Message from Eric Hoey

Eric Hoey, Director

This summer has not been boring here in the offices of Evangelism and Church Growth! 

The week of our national conference came and left so quickly. This year, we were blessed to have the conference sold out with over 450 registrants. We also had the greatest diversity of racial ethnic participants than ever before. We were delighted to welcome the African Americans, Brazilians, Hispanics, and Koreans to our conference. The week was more glorious because they came.

Our team presses forward to bring advancement in the 1001 New Worshiping Communities movement and in Engage for preparation of Evangelism Sunday.

The work is never complete, but serving the local church is our passion. This is what brings us into work every day.

May the Lord richly bless you this summer!
