SeaTac Missional District Cultivation Event

Visions for a New Church

On Saturday, April 2, 2022, the SeaTac Missional District gathered in a continuing effort to create learning opportunities for the lay and clergy leaders of our district, and for our Pacific Northwest Conference as well. This Cultivation Event highlighted ministries in the district that are engaging new energy and spirit that is opening doors to renewal and new life, that we believe can have a profound impact on every church and ministry.

You are invited to experience the devotional, the workshops and the closing reflection as you access the videos below.
