@WorkforYou: evangelism initiative


Each week we will share with you a new initiative or resource that you may not know about.

This week, evangelism! When you think about inviting people to church, or to be part of our community, does anxiety start to kick in? Bishop Gutiérrez has called the Diocese of Pennsylvania to a common vision: to know Jesus and change the world. An important part of this vision is evangelism. Canon Shawn Wamsley shares information about the creation of the Evangelism Committee which was created to help congregations and individual Christians to reimagine and engage our roles in proclaiming the Gospel. The Committee is all about your experience. Their work is directed toward helping you, every person in the pews, to connect with those around you in daily life; helping you find ways to share the impact your faith has had in your life with others; and helping you learn how to invite others to church in a way that honors our Episcopal identity. They are visiting churches and curating resources from around the Episcopal Church and this Diocese that represent best practices.

Please reach Canon Wamsley directly, swamsley@diopa.org, 215-627-6434, for more information on how you can get involved.
