Keynote Speaker: Carrie Boren Headington

The 196th Convention of the Diocese of Georgia will be held November 9-11 at The Patterson in Valdosta. The theme of the Convention: Fearless Faith, Boundless Love, serves as a prelude to the Revival which will be held January 20th at Honey Creek Retreat Center.

The keynote speaker, Carrie Boren Headington will continue the work begun at last year’s Convention with Invite-Welcome-Connect as we discover how we share Fearless Faith and Boundless Love beyond the walls of our church: as individuals in our daily lives and as parishes in our communities. She will walk delegates through key ways of developing an invitation strategy for their parish and every congregation will leave the Convention with clear next steps toward a plan for their church.
