2020 Invite Welcome Connect Summit Cancelled

After careful consideration, support, and collaboration with the University of the South and the Invite Welcome Connect Advisory Board, the difficult and responsible decision has been made to cancel the Invite Welcome Connect Summit occurring June 10-12, 2020.  As a result of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic we will host an Invite Welcome Connect Digital Gathering instead. Individuals who have registered for the in-person Summit will receive a full refund.

Using God’s gifts of creativity in ways that transforms lives is at the core of the ministry of Invite Welcome Connect. As we navigate these uncertain times in our faith communities we are seeing an amazing surge in creativity and it is such an affirmation given that we have been inviting clergy and lay leaders to try new things for the sake of the Gospel for a long time now!

As we live into these new challenging realities, Invite Welcome Connect is excited to partner with you and your faith community to equip clergy and lay leaders to redefine and reorient how you engage and live into a new way of love. We are in the early stages of planning a one-day Invite Welcome Connect Digital Gathering on Wednesday, June 10. Similar to the Summit, the Digital Gathering will include speakers and virtual panel presentations with opportunities for digital interaction.

More content and registration details will be forthcoming.
