Getting Beyond "The Episcopal Church Welcomes You."

Equip and empower your congregation to bring more people into your church. Live out Jesus’ great commission to “Go and make disciples” through practices in evangelism, hospitality, and connectedness. Come be trained in the transformative newcomer ministry method, Invite-Welcome-Connect, created and presented by congregational development consultant Mary Parmer. In the last four years, clergy and lay leaders from congregations and dioceses across the country have attended this dynamic training and report measurable results after using the materials. This transformative newcomer ministry process has brought new energy and spirit to congregations and sustained, real growth where the essentials of Invite-Welcome-Connect are followed.

This workshop is a cooperative effort of St. Martin's, Williamsburg; St. Michael’s, Bon Air; St. David’s, Richmond; and the Diocese of Southern Virginia.
