Telling Our Stories: Leading Like Jesus



The conference is seeking storytellers who will share stories about this year’s meeting theme, “Leading Like Jesus,” to publish in its website feature, “Telling Our Stories.”

“We want our church members to share stories about who, when and where they have witnessed someone leading like Jesus,” said Gretchen Hastings, director of Connectional Relations for the conference. “Stories can be about persons from any generation, any age from three to 93.”

We ask local church pastors, staff and district staff to help find participants for “Telling Our Stories” by encouraging persons they know who are willing to be our storytellers, she added.

There is a link below for nominating a storyteller.
