West Angola Bishop invited to Annual Conference

April 11, 2007

Bishop Gaspar Joao Domingos has shared his interest in joining us at the June Annual Conference Session. This will mark only the second time conference participants will have had the chance to hear from the Episcopal leader of our partner conference, since we joined in covenant with West Angola three years ago.


Bishop Beverly Shamana has invited Bishop Domingos to share in worship during each day’s plenary session as well as to speak about the work of the partnership on Saturday, June 23.


UMVIM Director Sue King will be taking a team from the conference to West Angola in late June. The group will be taking part in workshops and presentations and hearing from churches in the region about their work, and the ways in which we can continue our covenant of ministry and partnership together. The team will be traveling June 29-July 17.
