2018 Evangelism Conference: Sabbath Rest, Holy Surrender, Full Life @ Zephyr Point Presbyterian Conference Center
Oct 15 @ 8:00 am – Oct 19 @ 5:00 pm

Presbyterian Mission colleagues the Revs. Drs. Ray Jones and Jason Brian Santos in Theology, Formation and Evangelism ministries(TFE) at the Presbyterian Mission Agency have been asking each other questions about the practice of Sabbath such as, “What is it?”, “Why do we do Sabbath?” and “How do we depart, once we’ve participated in Sabbath?”

Jones, acting director of TFE, and Santos, coordinator of Christian Formation, took these questions to the 2018 Evangelism Conference planning team. Collaboratively, the group decided to create a different kind of conference experience for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), calling it the “2018 Evangelism Conference: Sabbath Rest, Holy Surrender, Full Life.”
