Being the church in the twenty-first century calls us to new challenges and demands greater commitment and understanding of our faith and action.
Leadership Focus 2019 explored a number of topics surrounding the theme of “being neighbors” in our local communities and the world. How can Moravians serve as neighbors in ways that enrich our spiritual lives, congregational lives, and mission in the world? What does being missional really look like today? What is God calling us to do or be in the 21st century?
A day of learning and fellowship, Leadership Focus is an annual event that provides education, training, and discussion opportunities for Southern Province Moravians.
