'Fishing for People--Evangelism for all the Baptized' workshop, July 15 led by Pr. Katie Kerrigan

'Fishing for People' is designed for all baptized members of our congregations, not just the ordained or specially trained. You’ll receive real-world, hands-on training and tips you can take back to your congregation to share, plus meet others from our mission territory who also want to share the Good News in their communities. You’ll walk out of this workshop excited and prepared to ‘fish for people’ and will have made a few new friends in the process.
