Being and Becoming a Multigenerational Church
Unpacking Generational Theory with Rev. Dr. Karl Travis

      The Rev. Dr. Karl Travis wowed participants at the 2016 Presbyterian Leadership Enrichment Event with his insights drawn from generational theory, sparking multiple requests for more time and greater detail spent on this important topic. Karl returns to us with an extended format, designed to help church teams consider how differing generational approaches can best be addressed in a way that honors all and does not set up unintended barriers to participation.   The event is Friday, March 31, and Saturday, April 1. It is hosted by St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (5308 Buffalo Speedway, Houston), sponsored by The Congregational Resourcing Team of the Presbytery of New Covenant.

      Bring your leadership team and walk away with new insights and action plans tailored to your unique context for ministry. Register online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/being-and-becoming-a-multigenerational-church-tickets-32242699783 by Tuesday, March 28 to assist us in our hospitality preparations.

      Rev. Dr. Laura Mendenhall will lead this year’s clergy retreat on April 25 through 27 at Camp Allen in Navasota, Texas. Clergy and spouses are invited to “Finding Water in Dry Land” where they will have an opportunity to remember the source of living Water, to recognize when their thirst is quenched and when it is not, and to drink deeply from God’s Word. There will be time to be nourished by good food and drink, by walks in the woods, and by rest and relaxation.

Register by April 17. Contact Carrie Walker for more information at 713-526-2585 or cwalker@pbyofnewcovenent.org.
