|Registration is now open for the 2021 Global Mission Conference sponsored by the Global Episcopal Mission Network online via Zoom, Thursday-Saturday, April 22-24, on the theme, “Earthkeeping: Creation Care in Global Mission.” Register here.
Climate change and ecological degradation constitute the major planetary crisis of our time. How can Christians in global mission engage with the crisis through the Creator God, the Redeeming Christ and the Empowering Spirit? What can our mission companions around the world teach us about climate justice, and how can we collaborate with them?
As the Global Mission Conference addresses these urgent questions, mission activists from around the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion are encouraged to attend.
The conference is organized on a 3/3/3 pattern: 3 3-hour sessions over the course of 3 days: Earth Day, which is April 22, followed by the 23rd and 24th. The times are the same each day: 10am-1pm Pacific, 1-4pm Eastern, 6-9pm GMT, 8-11pm South Africa.
Attendance at the conference is by donation. There is no fee, yet attendees are encouraged to make a donation as they are able, especially to become a GEMN member. There will also be opportunity to contribute to ecological justice projects in various parts of the world.
Plenary speakers include:
Workshops in breakout rooms include:
This year’s conference picks up GEMN’s initiative from last year’s Global Mission Conference, which was canceled in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. The experience of successful GEMN online offerings, such as the Mission Formation Program and Mission Thursdays, as well as many online conferences around the church, makes GEMN confident that this conference will ignite and inspire the joy of God’s mission amid the planetary crisis.
