I am writing to tell you to save the date for INTERFACE 2016. If you are new to the Restore Hope network, I’ll give you a brief description of this event. INTERFACE is a forum for pastors, mission ministers and missions leadership from local churches. It is a time to come together to discuss issues and practices that affect us all in our mission ministries. INTERFACE allows you to be exposed to some of the great ideas and practices of others, as well as giving you the opportunity to discuss issues that are of interest to you. The agenda for the event is shaped by the attendees so that we are sure to make time for the issues that are concerning you.
We have historically covered all kinds of topics and issues such as strategies, funding, crisis management, avoiding dependency, volunteer preparation, long-term worker training/preparation, team issues and more.
You have an opportunity to shape the agenda for our meeting in September. One way you can help shape the conversation is by emailing Kameryn L’Ecuyer with your response to this question:
If you could choose one issue that you would like to openly discuss with other church missions leaders, what would that issue be?
(Please feel free to elaborate.)
We value your input as it affects our planning for this event.
Save the Date:
September 15-16, 2016 in Arlington, Texas
(Affinity groups meet on the evening of the 15th / INTERFACE forum on the 16th)
Be on the lookout for more information and the INTERFACE registration email this summer, or follow us on social media to receive additional updates.
We look forward to seeing you there!
