Everyone is welcome to submit a proposal for either virtual or in-person programming for the 2023 Multi-platform General Assembly. Presenters from historically and currently marginalized communities, including people of color and youth, are encouraged to apply. Proposed programs should provide meaningful opportunities for learning and skill development, as well as address one or more of the following focus areas:
  • Becoming Adaptive and Resilient: Programs that equip congregations and leaders for these changing times. What is needed for congregations to nurture adaptive and resilient practices and to lean into change and experimentation. What new practices or programs are gaining momentum, engaging leaders, and fostering community for all ages, including children, youth, and families.
  • Becoming Theologically Rooted: Create opportunities for people to engage and deepen their understanding of our liberating theology and how it can offer hope, resilience, and courage for these times.
  • Becoming Skilled in Faithful Praxis: Opportunities to skill up in our justice work, to move beyond paternalism to partnership and solidarity in our justice work and to partner across congregations and nationally for change.
  • Becoming Connected in Community: Opportunities to embody our community of communities through programs that bring people together around affinity and identity and theology for sustenance, relationships, care, and networking.
The program proposal deadline is Friday, January 13.
