2020 GEMN Global Mission Conference in Indianapolis

Are you passionate about global mission? Do you want to get involved in mission but don’t know where to start? Are you an experienced mission leader, but want to take your global mission engagement to the next level? This is your conference!

The Global Episcopal Mission Network will hold its 2020 Global Mission Conference April 29 to May 1 at Christ Church Cathedral, Indianapolis. The theme, “Earthkeeping: Creation Care in Global Mission”, focuses on care of creation, the environment, and its impacts on our global mission partners, including issues of social justice, displacement, water access and poverty.

The conference will emphasize the role of connecting around creation care in global mission, both spiritually and practically. Keynote speakers will focus on the theology of creation care, as well as the many opportunities for mission partnerships that address environmental issues, eco-justice and sustainability. In addition, presentations and displays will highlight active indigenous and global environmental ministries.

• Attend keynotes by the Rt. Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori, oceanographer and former Presiding Bishop; the Rev. Dr. Rachel Mash, Environmental Coordinator of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa and Green Anglicans; the Rev. Leon Sampson of Navajoland; and the Rt. Rev. Orlando Gomez, Bishop of Costa Rica.
• Participate in mission workshops that will give you practical tools to bring back to your diocese, congregation or mission organization, including the development of environmental partnerships, healthy short-term mission trips, leadership and fundraising, applying Asset-Based Community Development tools in your ministry, developing and maintaining mission relationships, discerning a call as a missionary, mission spiritual formation, and mission best practices.
