Great success at the First Pilot Walking with Christ

On Saturday, September 23, Trinity, Baytown, hosted the first Walking with Christ event. This one-day retreat for spiritual renewal and intentional discipleship is designed to form lay leaders in their spiritual growth and leadership development through prayer, study, and action. 76 lay leaders representing over 20 congregations were in attendance. 14 of them were clergy who were personally invited to be part of this pilot retreat. 15 Hispanic lay leaders from the Houston and Austin areas committed to replicate this retreat in Spanish. 17 young adults from different congregations expressed that they too loved the intergenerational conversations shared during group sessions.

This spiritual retreat is intended to identify potential lay leaders including young adults across the diocese who are engaged in leadership development. Lay leaders expressed that they felt refreshed and renewed by this gathering.

We invite you to cultivate your spiritual gifts and strengthen your faith. Your church and today’s world need you. Rise up and walk with Christ, empowered by the power of the Holy Spirit.
