NAECED is really the only association within our Episcopal umbrella that intentionally seeks to meet the many needs of those engaged in Lifelong Christian Formation and Education ministry. Attention is given to welcome and include volunteers and those blessed with paychecks, lay persons and those in the clergy orders. The title of the group may be misleading for some; National Association for Episcopal Christian Education Directors. I invite you to give more consideration to our descriptors; Your Network for Christian Education and A dynamic community celebrating and upholding the diverse ministries of Christian Formation.
This truly is a dedicated network of faithful saints working to support one another in creative and compassionate ways, building relationships while building the body of Christ within our denomination and beyond. Membership gets you access to a wonderful forum for conversation and consultation, the list serve, as well as discounts on resources and more. Membership is a great value!
Mark your calendar for the 2011 Tapestry Conference, February 3-5. We'll be in Charlotte, North Carolina, "Equipping the Saints for the Work of Ministry."
