The GO Conference: A Vision for New England

February 17, 2017 - February 18, 2017

The Anglican Diocese in New England would like to encourage those interested to participate in Vision New England’s GO Conference. See registration information below!

Remember what it was like to join countless other believers from across New England for Congress? After nearly a decade we will gather together again with new vision and renewed energy. On February 17-18, join us for the GO Conference at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. GO is focused on inspiring, equipping, and uniting the body of Christ in our region behind the challenge found in Micah 6:8.

What does it look like to Do Justice, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly? Doing justice and loving mercy require action on behalf of the innocent and the guilty. Walking humbly and making disciples are inseparable. Engaging communities, our region, and our world requires our combined efforts rooted in love and humility.

The GO Conference is being planned by a team of geographically and denominationally diverse leaders. Special thanks to all of our team leaders who are devoting countless hours to create this event to equip and encourage the body of Christ here in New England. We invite you to pray for and with them.

The Vision? Growing together in the Great Commission and Great Commandment in New England

Love God, Love others and Make disciples. The great commandment and great commission are the core of kingdom building and disciple making around the world. But what does it mean to love God and Love others practically? How do we effectively make disciples in a New England context? According to Micah 6:8, loving God and loving others means doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly. These are the marks of those building God’s kingdom here on Earth. When we commit our lives and our churches to these activities we open the door for disciple-making. Sharing the Gospel of Jesus with our neighbors means first seeking justice for the oppressed, championing mercy over judgment, maintaining a posture of humility and only then will the truth of Jesus shine brightly. The GO Conference focuses growing in these areas together as New Englanders doing ministry in a New England specific context.  Learn from the successes and disappointments from those in New England seeing fruit in these areas. Come and encourage other New Englanders with your own stories of success and disappointment. Connect with other like minded Jesus followers committed to advancing the gospel in our region.
