Evangelism Matters to Stream

Adapted from the Office of Public Affairs

Evangelism Matters, a churchwide conference on evangelism scheduled for Nov. 18-19, will be available through live streaming. Registration is full for attending the conference in person.

The conference is cosponsored by Forward Movement and the Presiding Bishop’s Office, and is hosted by the Diocese of Dallas and Church of the Transfiguration in Dallas.

“Episcopalians are excited to focus on evangelism, noticing and celebrating how God works in our lives and in the lives of the people around us,” said the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, the Presiding Bishop’s canon for evangelism and reconciliation. “We’ve made arrangements for those who could not attend to connect through a live webcast and on-demand afterwards, and we hope as many individuals and groups as possible will host viewings and participate in this churchwide movement.”

Key portions of Evangelism Matters will be webcast live to allow for individual and group viewing during conventions, discussion groups, and local evangelism gatherings.

The free webcast will be accessible through the Evangelism Matters website. A webcast in Spanish will be available through a Facebook feed.
