Join us for a workship that will help equip us as the church in Northeast Ohio to pursue multiethnic worship. Learn biblical foundations and practical tools that will help you and your ministry take steps forward toward becoming even deeper reconciling and culturally inclusive spaces.
9:30am-12:30pm: The Next Worship Workshop
This workshop draws deeply from her book, "The Next Worship: Glorifying God in a Diverse World". Because of this, we've included both a free ticket option, as well as an option to purchase the book at a discounted rate of $10, where you'll be able to receive it when you check in to the workshop. The pre-purchased book is only available until 2/7/18 at 11:59pm. You can still register for a free ticket at the door.
The Next Worship Workshop is hosted by Citizens Akron Church. Special thanks to Christ Community Chapel and the CCDA Local/Regional Networks.
