“The Pacific Northwest Conference has been learning tools of faith-based organizing to change the world,” said Courtney Stange-Tregear, minister for church vitality. “This programmatic event will be an opportunity to take our learning to the next step and apply it to our setting.

“A lack of affordable housing, environmental degradation, racial inequity, abuse of immigrants—all of these big scary problems have local, specific manifestations,” she said. “Weaving ourselves together, we can make real, concrete, important change in our churches and communities across the Pacific Northwest.” 

This event continues conversations and learnings of the last two Annual Meetings and more

“We will practice the tools and strategies available to guide our Conference from learning and caring about the systemic problems that matter, to taking action about the issues that matter,” said Courtney, who is heading the team planning the event. “It is not an exact continuation of Annual Meeting conversations, but continues working on justice issues.”

Meals are included in registration and there is child care.
