PresbyFest 2013, held at Mercer Island Presbyterian Church, presents speakers and leaders who can look at what it means to be church in a variety of different ways, from many angles, and with different approaches.
Beginning with keynote speaker, PBS Newshour Senior Correspondent and journalist Ray Suarez, we will take a look at the role of the Church throughout worldwide current affairs and our national landscape.
Three separate sessions of workshops will follow with four offerings each, ranging from nuts and bolts ministry practices to theological conversations and mission planning. The day will end with a special worship service with guest preacher Archbishop Elias Chacour who has spent his life working for peace and reconciliation among Jews, Muslims, and Christians in Jerusalem.
A registration fee of $10 per person will cover lunch as well as conference costs. You must have a ticket to attend PresbyFest 2013. This event is co-sponsored by Seattle Presbytery, North Puget Sound Presbytery, and Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry.
