CHICAGO, IL (March 19, 2014) — Triennial XV will be held at the Sheraton Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri, July 28-31, 2016, it was announced.
“Triennial is meaningful worship, thought-provoking speakers, challenging learning experiences, heart-pumping excursions, life-altering spiritual experiences, and opportunities to take next steps in addressing injustice in our world,” said Marti Burger, director of Covenant Events. “It is a chance to connect with God and with one another across generations, cultures, geography, and life experiences.”
Meagan Gillan of Women Ministries said Kansas City provides a lot of advantages for the event. “The Crown Center Sheraton will be an excellent home for us,” she said. “It’s a beautiful hotel and there is a lot happening around it.”
“There are great financial advantages for us, as Kansas City is a very affordable market to fly into,” Gillan said. “Women can add to their adventure by joining with their friends to take the Amtrak train. The station is just a few blocks away and connected to the hotel by a climate-controlled walkway.”
She added, “Kansas City is known as the ‘City of Fountains,’ which is a great image for followers of Christ. It reminds us of the living water promised by Jesus, flowing in and through us as we gather.”
