As our West Ohio Conference continues to work toward reimagining our ministries with the Emerging Generation (birth – 29 years) and their families, your hopes, dreams and input are critical to successfully developing a sustainable and life-giving path forward for generations to come.

As such, the WOC invites you to come share what is on your heart and mind regarding the ministry of discipleship with Emerging Generations by participating in a Virtual Listening Circle. The Listening Circle process is an ancient, restorative practice used to surface thoughts, feelings, and ideas around any issue or challenge facing a community. The Circle is a safe place to recognize the past, name the current realities of the present and move toward the future through the act of listening without judgement.

By participating in the Emerging Generations Listening Circle, we aim to support each other and extend understanding and empathy to each other as we process the realities of forging a West Ohio’s reimagined Emerging Generations Ministry.

In order to make space for each person to be heard, we ask that you only register and participate in one of the virtual four circle conversations. To register, click on the date and time below you wish to attend.
