Growing the Jesus Movement in your Church:
RenewalWorks from Idea to Action

May 2-4, 2017
Saint John’s Episcopal Church, Memphis, TN

How do you move your church from busying itself with more and more activities to a singular focus on spiritual growth and discipleship? Using the research-driven fundamentals of RenewalWorks, Saint John’s Episcopal Church believes you can grow a Jesus movement in your church, no matter its size.

Come to Memphis in May and see this process in action. Take home tools to make it your own. Hear from parishioners, staff, and clergy on topics like “The Entrepreneurial Priest,” “Dinosaur Eggs and the End of Christendom,” and “Empowerment Without Abandonment – From Clergy to Lay Led.”

Clergy, staff, and lay people are encouraged to attend. We welcome those who have participated in RenewalWorks, those who might be considering it, and those who may never participate in RenewalWorks but simply wish to make spiritual growth the priority in their parishes, building cultures of discipleship in Episcopal congregations.

Registration costs just $125 for three days. (Does not include hotel or travel).

The conference begins at 2:30pm on Tuesday, May 2 (registration begins at 1pm) and ends at noon on Thursday, May 4, with option of adding a Thursday afternoon visit to the Civil Rights Museum and other interesting places in Memphis.

To register for the conference and to find out about hotels, contact Mr. Stephen Nelson at Saint John’s:
