Evangelism: Seeking, Naming, Celebrating & Inviting People in the Way of Love
Our purpose is to organize the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast to engage spiritual practices that seek, name, and celebrate Jesus’ loving presence in the stories of all people and then invite everyone to MORE with God. We do this by supporting congregations to move beyond existing structures and programs, offering formation opportunities for each congregation to designate an Evangelism Catalyst who will lead them in implementing some new resource activity or action each year, developing a team of Diocesan Evangelism Catalysts in each Convocation who is available to develop leadership and growth in each region’s ministry of evangelism, as well as providing support and encouragement to ongoing implementation of Sharing Faith Dinners, Invite-Welcome-Connect, and the Episcopal Church’s Evangelism 101 & 201 tools and resources.
