Carolinas Black Clergy Retreat Scheduled for August
It has been a roller coaster, but you've held on! Now we are living with two pandemics—COVID19 and racism. There is a lot going on all at once, but God is up to something. I believe that change is coming and God wants to use us to make a difference.
Now it’s time to step back, take a breath—rest, relax, reflect, refocus, recharge, and reimagine your life and ministry in a setting of support with your colleagues, bishops, and others who want to support you as you support and care for others.
Our Leaders and Presenters:
Bishop L. Jonathan Holston, Bishop Hope Ward, Bishop Paul Leeland
Rev. Dr. Joe Daniels, Keynote Speaker, The Power of Godly Vision
Rev. Dr. Henry Masters, Editor—By Faith Magazine
Rev. Regina Henderson Moore, Resourcing/Funding Your Vision

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
