After a day and a half of travel related adventures, I am happily ensconced at the Baltimore Hilton to attend and “live tweet” this year’s Mid-Atlantic Congress. If you’re unfamiliar with this event, you can learn more about it here, but this is an overview of the organizing principles:
The Mid-Atlantic Congress (MAC) is organized around three essential themes, one for each of the three days.
- Thursday—Being Enthusiastic About Our Faith: Creating and sustaining passion about our faith, translating it into mission, sharing that mission with others, and learning successful supportive leadership strategies
- Friday—Inviting Others into the Life and Mission of the Church as Disciples: Engaging others, especially those of diverse backgrounds and experiences, including emerging voices in the Church, to interact with key speakers and leadership/management experts
- Saturday—Motivating People to Live a Life of Witness, Service, and Apostolic Action: Moving people into faith and into community engagement through proven leadership and management techniques
Things are just getting into action this morning, so I thought I’d share a few of the “getting ready” photos I shot this morning:
