Some Additional Ministries
To encourage a diverse group of gifted young candidates to enter pastoral service in the Texas Annual Conference, and to equip local congregations to identify and encourage persons with appropriate gifts and graces and a clear sense of call to commit to pastoral ministry, the Center for Clergy Excellence offers a pastoral internship for college students.
Gastrochurch is an experiment in intentional conversation about spiritual things over really good food. We meet in restaurants, homes, yards, and the occasional farm to share an intentional meal together. We believe in slow food, good food, and shared food, and we believe that somewhere in the mix, God tends to show up.
Their mission is to engage young adults in purposeful leadership and ministry, support children in holistic development, and connect churches with communities. The Texas Conference is exploring bringing Project Transformation to the Houston area in 2020, so would be great to have some young adults with experience to lanuch at that time.
Young adults (21-40-ish) from all over Houston, with varying beliefs/worldviews, gather to drink craft beer and discuss topics about the Christian faith.
