hear from Bishop Suarez about his emerging vision for ministry in this synod.
Together, through mutual listening and dialogue, all participants will discuss the
challenges and opportunities facing congregations today, reflect together on the
common call to ministry through our baptism, and consider the resources God
has already given us to infuse our ministries with vitality through leadership
development, appreciation of diversity, and interdependence on one another.
