ReNew Community Church
People throughout the Reformed Church in America have been exploring what it means for women and men to flourish in ministry...together! In partnership with the Classes of Central Iowa and Pleasant Prairie, we invite you to join us in Ames, Iowa, on Saturday, February 16, 2019, for this day-long workshop in a retreat-like setting. We will share the joys and challenges of partnering in ministry with someone of a different gender than you. Explore scripture, hear stories, identify your current realities, and imagine new pathways that can result in greater flourishing for women and men as they partner together in your ministry context. Local leaders will be joined by Dr. Rob Dixon, Rev. April Fiet, Ms. Lesley Mazzotta, and Rev. Liz Testa for an interactive, Spirit-led day of transformation and growth. Download the flyer here.
