The 2014 Conference

Out of the Deep:
Pastoring in Creative Spaces

In 2014, we were excited to welcome over 75 young clergy women from around the world to Minneapolis, MN for a time of learning, fellowship, worship and connection. We were also very pleased to offer on-site childcare for the second year running.

From July 7-10, 2014, we were welcomed by Westminster Presbyterian Church. Our time was led by Rev. Ruth Harvey, a member of the Iona Community (Scotland), a Church of Scotland minister, and a tireless worker for conflict resolution in the church.

During our time together we explored questions of ministry in new and creative spaces, what it looks like to be leaders in a shifting world.  We joined together around tables for delicious meals and even better company.  We relaxed and played together: singing Karaoke at the Mall of America, getting our nails done, playing minigolf in the sculpture park, going out for morning runs around the pond, and more.
