Called: Reignite the call
March 22 @ 6:00 PM - March 23 @ 8:00 PM$90 – $150
You felt called, but now what? Join us for a time set aside to revisit and reignite a previous sense of call to missions & ministry.
Is it time to move forward? Do you have a feeling of holy discontent? Come to a time set aside for reflection and discernment as we revisit a sense of call and invite God’s Spirit to fan the embers into flame. During this retreat, sponsored by Eastern Mennonite Missions and LMC we will come together for worship, teaching, reflection, and tools for next steps. Registration fee includes meals and one night of lodging.
Glenn and June Kauffman will serve as the speakers for the event. With their two children, they were missionaries in Hong Kong for 15 years. Upon moving to Laurel, Md., they continued their cross-cultural missionary life by participating in Capital Christian Fellowship (CCF), a congregation of over 25 nationalities. Glenn is a pastor, and June leads the ESL ministry and is active on the worship team. June teaches ESL in a middle school, and Glenn also serves as a bishop in the Washington Baltimore LMC district. In addition, Glenn leads the International Missions Association, which links and forms partnerships with Anabaptist cross-cultural missionary-sending churches and organizations from around the world.
Horeb and Sonya Penya will lead worship. Sonya worked for five years with EMM as an intercessor for youth in mission. Horeb is a middle school teacher in inner-city Lancaster. They have five children ages 3-17 and engage in mission at home and abroad — mostly in ministry trips to South America. Currently, at home, they are serving with Christ the King Community Church in Lancaster and Wilkens Avenue Mennonite Church in Baltimore.
