Welcome

Triennial Key Note Speaker

We are excited to announce that Demi Prentiss, author of Radical Sending, Go to Love and Serve, has accepted our invitation to be the Keynote speaker at our Triennial meeting next July in Austin. Demi has been a ministry developer at the parish, diocesan, and church-wide levels for 25 years, and has worked and worshiped in congregations of all sizes, in both established dioceses and in those dioceses that have undergone or are undergoing reorganization.

Doing the work God have given us to do

In Radical Sending, Go to Love and Serve Ms. Prentiss explores the role that congregations play in helping to equip and strengthen one another for the shared work that we are called to do in the world. She discusses the role of the sending in the Eucharist and its importance for Christians: having been nourished, we are exhorted to go forth to love and serve the Lord. We are all called to ministry and we look forward to Ms. Prentiss expanding our horizons as we “are sent out to do the work God has given us to do.” Learn more about Demi at Church-Next.

NAGA Scholarships for Triennial Meeting

Are you a dedicated altar guild member but have limited means? Do you live in a diocese or a province where there is no altar guild group beyond your own church with which to meet and share ideas and problems? If this describes you, you are an ideal candidate for a NAGA scholarship…

Have You Taken the NAGA Survey?

Recognizing that altar guilds from parishes across the country have varying needs and concerns, we invite you to complete our NAGA Survey so we can better serve everyone. The results will be of help in planning our triennial meeting as well as in developing programs that can be shared with altar guilds as requested.
