Moravian Ministry Voyage

Saturday, September 15, 2018 | 12:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. | Advent Moravian Church 

Provincial agencies will gather in an information fair culminated by a full production of Irene: the Adventure Begins! This event will be for all ages as we trace our roots back to the beginnings of Moravian missions. The ministry fair will be from 12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The play will be at 2:00 p.m.

John Leonard Dober and David Nitschman are names you may not readily recognize. Dober was a potter and David a carpenter. These were ordinary occupations for two extraordinary men whose adventure shaped the Moravian Church as it is today. In 1732, they left the security of their jobs and families and became the first Moravian missionaries. It was not an easy task but they answered the call to “come and minister the gospel to us.”

Their purpose in life was to follow the Lamb who had given His life for them and for all the souls of the world. This year the Moravian Church Southern Province is celebrating this historic event by hosting a modern Moravian Ministry Voyage.


The Informational Fair

Each agency associated in some way with the Moravian Church today will have a booth in a fair setting to talk and display how their agency is ministering the gospel to Moravians today. Moravians of all ages – young and old- can visit these booths and learn about our mission today.

Irene: the Adventure Begins!

This musical originally written by Brother John Wallace of the Northern Province and adapted and directed by Joyce Carter will warm your hearts and help you learn about the early history of Moravians in the islands and the beginnings of the Moravian Church in North America. It is an excellent opportunity for children, confirmation classes, adults, and everyone to learn about this significant event.
