The CEEP Network will gather at the Strengthening Leaders for a Changing Church: Leading Beyond the Walls Annual Gathering from February 19-22, 2020 in Louisville, Kentucky. Calvary Church hosts the CEEP Network at the Omni Hotel in downtown Louisville — the City of Beautiful Churches.
The Strengthening Leaders for a Changing Church: Leading Beyond the Walls Annual Gathering will feature twelve education tracks and nine pre-conferences. The exciting program will include new tracks on strategic planning and search and transition, reimagined local and global approaches to partnership and ministry, as well as tracks on liturgy and music, stewardship and development, and communications. Sessions are crafted to bring members and guests together with thought leaders for exceptional peer-to-peer learning and to create communities of learning and support that continue beyond the Annual Gathering.
Join members of the largest and deepest network of resourced institutions from across The Episcopal Church and around the country as we continue the work of strengthening leaders for a changing church through connecting, equipping, and diversifying. Look for more information about the CEEP Network’s Annual Gathering in the coming weeks.
Registration opens on October 1. The CEEP Network looks forward to welcoming you to the Bluegrass State for a hopeful and joyful gathering of friends — old and new!
