Triennial Update

We now have a wonderful schedule in place and have made our initial contacts and reservations for our meeting. We will be within easy walking distance of  the Austin Convention Center where we have a suitable location for the sacristy and plenty of room for all our supplies. Click here for the Triennial Registration Form. We will be staying at the JW Marriott. To make your hotel reservation, please email Lynn Hendricks, or Dianne Walters, for the hotel passkey email link.

Our time together will focus on “The 3 L’s of Leadership.” We will have speakers, workshops, and hands-on activities planned around the 3L’s…

Learn to be effective and fulfilled in living our own “sending,” the work (ministry) we have chosen to be a part of by building up our knowledge and spiritual goals.

A Visit to the Painted Churches of Texas
