"Jesus is Calling"
Three Rivers District is committed to the mission of the East Ohio Conference, "to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world." In addition to administrative services, we assist pastors and church leadership in their roles and duties as well as create opportunities for mission and outreach. Through a network of communication, accountability and workshops we can equip clergy and lay for ministry and spiritual growth. Each year a focus is developed that mirrors the quadrennial theme of the conference, Jesus is Calling. In 2015 that theme broadens to Jesus is Calling Us Up with an emphasis on encouraging disciples to take the next step in their faith journey.
"Deep & Wide" was the theme for the Three Rivers 2015 Leadership Event where participants discovered how deep is God's grace and how wide is His call. Participants were encouraged to deepen their spiritual formation through meaningful worship, prayer and the study of God's World. They were encouraged to widen their community outreach by sharing God's love and serving in mission and ministry.
