UTO: Missional Voices

The UTO Board and staff are thrilled to announce Raising Grateful Voices, a new opportunity to gather together to learn, share, and experience UTO Grant sites.  This triennium, UTO will be offering annual regional gatherings in conjunction with other complementary gatherings in The Episcopal Church in different regions of the country.  This year, we are partnering with Missional Voices and Christ Church Cathedral in New Orleans.  Missional Voices was started by a group of seminarians a few years ago to provide a forum for important conversations about mission and the growing edge of the Church, making it a natural partner for UTO.
We’ve designed our time together to keep costs at a minimum.  We’ll begin after lunch on Wednesday, June 12, and end at lunchtime on Thursday, June 13.  Our keynote speaker for the UTO closing event is Kids Orchestra from Baton Rouge, Louisiana who will present some of the practices the group started thanks to a UTO Grant.  In between, we’re offering a ton of great workshops, from Introduction to Asset-Based Community Development, Gratitude and Faith Formation, and Grant Writing Best Practices to all of our usual UTO offerings on best financial practices and ways to promote UTO.  We’ll be sure to have traditional New Orleans snacks at break time in addition to giving you time to enjoy the city while you’re with us. 

Registration for the full event is just $40, and you can register at https://dfms.formstack.com/forms/uto_day_at_missional_voices_registration_2019
