2020 Renewal Day and AGM

More than 100 people joined us for our first online Renewal Day and AGM on Saturday, April 25th, 2020, using Zoom Webinar. The theme was “20/20 Vision: Vigilant and Vital.” Rev. Jonathan Hong spoke about the current theological division in the denomination: “Where are we now? How did we get here? Where to from here?” followed by a panel discussion with Rev. Christine O’Reilly, Rev. Douglas Rollwage, and Rev. Frances Savill and questions from some of the attendees. The event was moderated by the Renewal Fellowship Executive Director, Rev. Andy Cornell. The Annual General Meeting was convened by Renewal Board Chair, Rev. Ian Shaw.
