From April 11-13 the Seminary will welcome the Global Episcopal Mission Network (GEMN) conference. This is an opportunity we should not miss and to encourage the community take part, GEMN has generously offered significantly reduced rates for our community. All current students, faculty, and staff may register for the nominal fee of $12 enabling them to attend all programs and events during the conference. Register here.
GEMN consists of dioceses, churches, organizations, and individuals throughout our church who are passionate about connecting their faith in Christ with the world. The 2018 conference will focus on the theme “Mission Connects Us: God, World, Church.” VTS seminarians will be involved in the conference offering workshops, and Dr. Robert Heaney will be the keynote speaker along with the Anglican Communion's director of mission, the Rev. Canon John Kafwanka.
Virginia Seminary has a strong tradition of mission theology and mission practice. This conference, especially through the keynote addresses, gives us all a unique opportunity to hear contemporary Anglican perspectives on Christian mission for today's church and world. We are grateful to our Center for Anglican Communion Studies for partnering with GEMN in this conference.
