Message from Eric Hoey

Eric Hoey, Director

In the March issue of Presbyterians Today, people told stories that lifted up the impact of our camp and conferences. These stories are “of places” they wrote, “where ceaseless chatter about decline and scarcity finds no home.”

Their point about these places becoming “a place where the community of God is thriving” got me thinking about all of our ministry work. I encourage you to take a few moments to enter into stories that reflect God’s abundance.

Stories of transformation can happen during retreat in the beauty of our Sacred Spaces—or in conversation with youth exploring their faith through what they read and absorb in pop culture.

Together, Presbyterians of all ages are learning how to go, disciple and live in our world, which is the theme of this year’s Evangelism and Church Growth Conference (ECG2014).
