Convention Corner: Is there talent in your congregation ready to shine?

Convention Corner

Do you have a member of your congregation that is great with technology? What about that person that is a rockstar in retail sales? God has blessed us each with amazing talents and many times we miss letting them shine. Now is the time to find those talented people in your congregations and let them know how they can shine at the diocesan level.

The Arrangements Committee is asking for everyone to help connect them with talented people in our congregations who may not realize they can volunteer at the diocesan level. Below you will find brief descriptions of the various roles they are still looking to fill. As you read through them think of those amazing people in your congregations and who may be a great fit. Share the good news with them and guide them to the contact information below. Together as a diocese we will help create a strong Arrangements Committee and ensure the success of the 150th Convention.
