Convention Theme:

BUILDING BRIDGES BEYOND OURSELVES

As people who follow Jesus, we are called to build bridges beyond ourselves – to one another, to our communities, and to God. Our bridges are built through invitation, justice seeking, and love sharing.

In this time of rapid change and transition, and as we live more deeply into our period of shared ministry between our two dioceses, we consider our call to be bridge builders – to invite one another into relationship and knowledge of God’s love, across parishes, across dioceses, across denominations, and beyond.

 

Keynote Speaker:

PRESIDING BISHOP MICHAEL CURRY

The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry is the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church. A graduate of Yale Divinity School, Presiding Bishop Curry served congregations in North Carolina, Ohio, and Maryland before his consecration as the XI Bishop of North Carolina in 2000. Throughout his ministry, the Presiding Bishop has been a justice and reconciliation seeker, speaking out on immigration policy and marriage equality.

Presiding Bishop Curry is a world-renowned preacher and teacher, having been invited to speak at churches, cathedrals, and conferences around the United States and well beyond, including the 2018 wedding of Prince Harry of Wales and Megan Markle. In 2018, he was named the Religion Newsmaker of the Year by the Religion News Association.

In addition to numerous articles and essays, he has authored four books: The Power of Love (2018); Following the Way of Jesus: Church’s Teachings in a Changing World (2017); Songs My Grandma Sang (2015); and Crazy Christians:  A Call to Follow Jesus (2013).

He and his wife, Sharon Clement, live in North Carolina.
