Professional and spiritual development in collegial community
Join RevGalBlogPals for Big Event 2020: From Vision to Action, where three outstanding clergywomen will share their stories and help participants explore how a vision for ministry becomes action in the world. Our week will include worship, plenary sessions, breakout and affinity groups; options for yoga, coaching, and spiritual direction; free time, social activities, and more. Our venue is the Franciscan Center in Tampa, Florida, situated on 8 acres along the Hillsborough River.
Our keynote speakers are Rev. Naomi Washington-Leapheart, Director for Faith-Based and Interfaith Affairs for the city of Philadelphia; Rev. Erin Counihan, Pastor, Oak Hill Presbyterian Church, St. Louis, Missouri; and Rev. Hannah Adair Bonner, Director, Frontera Wesley, the Wesley Foundation of Tucson. Our worship leader is Rev. Dr. Shaun Whitehead, Associate Chaplain, St. Lawrence University. Read more about the program leaders here.
Check-in will begin at 4 p.m. on Monday, January 27. Big Event 2020 will end with lunch on Friday, January 31, and we will depart by 1 p.m. All meals are included from Monday dinner through Friday lunch.
