ARGYLE, TX (December 27, 2010) – The Midsouth Conference of the Evangelical Covenant Church will host a pilot “Connecting in the Covenant” seminar February 11-12 at Briarwood Retreat Center here.
The seminar will give Covenant pastors and lay leaders an introduction to the history, ministry and mission of the Evangelical Covenant Church. The seminar will begin with dinner on Friday evening and conclude at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
Each Midsouth Covenant church is welcome to bring up to four leaders. The conference will provide lodging and meals. Churches will cover their own transportation to and from the seminar.
Garth Bolinder, conference superintendent, said the seminar is important because 50 percent of Covenanters are new to the denomination in the past 10 years, and the percentages are much higher in the Midsouth. “We need to find ways to help these new friends connect in the Covenant in order to learn more about what it means to be ‘in it together.’ ”
Registration forms will be sent soon to every church. For more information, email the Midsouth conference office or call 479-631-1212.
