Join us for three days where we will explore how we can "grow in grace."
This year’s CE Gathering will focus on our call to partner with God in helping those we serve recognize that God is present with us even when the reality we’re living in feels strange and stringent. We are called to help people find comfort, hope and strength and to help them notice God’s good work in their lives. Grace does its best work in our partnership with God. It spurs us on. We find hope and strength for living and we grow. We grow in faith, trust, and the ability to hold fast to God’s word.
Our multi-approach to caring will feature Plenary sessions, workshops, and poster sessions uniquely geared for advancing practitioner skills in spiritual direction, and formational care.
