Mission-Minded, Joyful Assembly Inspires South Carolina Delegation
“It was not what I thought it was going to be – a legislative business meeting,” said John Benson, a delegate from Prince George Winyah in Georgetown, and one of 40 participants from the Diocese of South Carolina. “It was a spirit-filled, powerful experience. I was hoping for it to be that, but it went beyond my expectations.”
The assembly, whose theme was "mission on our doorstep," offered plenary talks and workshops/seminars on church planting, reaching international students, creating multi-ethnic partnerships and more. The plenary talks are available to watch online.
