Storytelling | January 13-15, 2020

Join us for three days of learning at the next Bishop’s Clergy Convocation. Monday, January 13 through Wednesday, the 15 at the Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch.

This year’s focus will be on Storytelling. From practical tools to help you tell a story to opportunities for conversations to help you understand your story or learn from someone else’s story, this year’s convocation promises to be another one that could change your life or maybe the perspective you have..

Come for the learning. Come for the growing. Come for the friendship and meaningful conversations. Take with you, wisdom and insight… and maybe even a new friend that will help guide you on your journey.

Featuring The Moth

Highlighting the 2020 Convocation will be The Moth, a Peabody award winning organization, who will work with clergy in small group sessions and one on one to shape stories to make them powerful testimonies to faith and transformation.

Listen to the Moth playlist.
